About The Event
In 2020 we worked with the Smithsonian to bring the Water/Ways exhibit to St. Joseph. We had multiple H2JO programs for middle school students to learn about water in the area. COVID-19 interrupted our plan to resume activities in the spring, but we have one more piece of this project to complete; a video project to show St. Joseph’s water story.
We will be hosting a two day workshop to learn about the filming process, storyboarding, and some different editing software. Students are encouraged to bring a device they feel comfortable learning on; ipad, tablet, smartphone, camera. The museum will have a few to use that day, but a film project will be assigned for the second day so a personal device will be helpful to have.
Day one, Sunday February 7th from 1-3 pm, the students learn about filming. An interview set up will be used to get practice interviewing each other about water topics, and green screen use. We would also talk about the elements of a good video, introduction, story line, some visual effects, conclusion. We will discuss what we want our video to cover, what it should look like, decide what we still need for film or photos to make that plan work. Finally, we will assign responsibilities to get that missing content. Day two will be Sunday March 7th from 1-3 pm.
During the space of time between the workshop days they can filming assignments on their own schedule. Our programming staff will also prepare some additional film and photos they could use. Then on day 2 we learn more about sharing content they took, look at some different apps they could use on their own devices, and work as a group with a video editing software to put the final work together.
