This after-school course is a progression from Middle School Media Studies. The goal of the course is to expose students to the language and history of cinema as an art form. From watching and analyzing films, students move on to practical skills development in audiovisual storytelling, cinematography basics, sound recording, and editing. The course also engages students in the use of video for service learning, through Web video production, community media work and the professional documentation of artwork.
The after-school course can serve as elective art credit for Grade 9 and 10 students. The community media aspect prepares students for CAS projects within and beyond the school community. The course is on Thursdays after school.
