Students have the chance to be their own film director. They meet weekly with other filmmaking fans where they will learn tips and tricks, share personal projects they are working on and find support within the community. They will learn how to add new ideas, tools and hacks to their own movies too. Of course, once it is done they will have the opportunity to watch the projects together and celebrate the big premiere.
America/Europe Meetup: Wednesdays at 11.00am PST / 6.00 pm GMT
Provide students with the opportunity to develop skills in writing, producing, filming, and editing. Mutual support and sharing ideas are of utmost importance 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 fascinating – it’s shaping my life and the way I think.
I am curious about so many topics and subjects and have realized that learning never stops. I love video editing (of course), spending time 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.
We mainly use the cloud based editing software WeVideo. At the same time students can work with DaVinci Resolve 16, Adobe Premiere Pro or free software like OpenShot, iMovie or Windows Video Editor.
We will meet for one hour a week for a live session. Keep in mind that filmmaking and editing can take quite some time, depending on how big your project will be. If you feel passionate about it and go with the flow, you probably will not notice how much time you spend on filming or editing. Have fun!
