img_3885The Intro to Film and Video students are now in the post-production stage of their recent project.  Since the beginning of the school year, students in the intro class have learned various techniques that are essential to a well produced production. After seeing videos from upperclassman during the Fright Night Film Festival in October, the students have seen how the quality of their work will advance over the course of the program.  Consistently working on the basics of production gives them the ability to advance more quickly in the field. This project tests their abilities to apply those simple and advanced techniques to a short sequenced video.  After following proper camera techniques during production, the post-production process is where students piece together their clips, apply transitions and add multiple layers of audio tracks.  Stay tuned for the final cuts.
