Students have the chance to be their own film director. They meet weekly with other filmmaking fans and learn tips and tricks, share personal projects they are working on and find support within the community adding new ideas, tools and hacks to their own movies. And, of course, once is done they watch the projects all together and celebrate the premiere.
- Europe / Asia Meetup: Wednesday at 10 am GMT - America Meetup: Wednesday at 10 am PST
Provide students with the opportunity to develop skills in writing, producing, filming, and editing. Mutual support and sharing ideas are key in this club.
About the Club Teacher
My name is Torsten and I’m a father to three wonderful homeschooled children. My original background is in journalism but I also worked many, many years in education with children and families (UK NVQ Level III). I am passionate about outdoor learning fun! That’s why I founded the “Wild Dads UK” outdoor group and also facilitated outdoor learning groups for the Permaculture Association UK.
I was born in East Germany (GDR) many moons ago and have been living in six countries. Learning about new cultures is something I find very fascinating – it’s shaping my life and thinking.
I am curious about so many topics and subjects and see myself, that learning never stops. I love video editing (of course ;-)), being outdoors, cooking, history, playing with my kids, swimming, running, reading, being silly and so much more.
My motto: We come across challenges every day. Let’s take them on with curiosity and creativity.
This is what you need to have to become a filmmaker:
- Desktop computer or a laptop (Windows or Mac) and a smartphone or camera to record videos to join this club.
- We will be using the software/app WeVideo (wevideo.com). Once you join the club you will get sent a link with which you can join our Galileo WeVideo account.
- For sound effects and music I recommend the free software Audacity.
One hour of live classes each week. And then spend as much time as you like practicing. Video editing can take a while, especially when you start learning it.
