Mini Horror Movie
Either in your own or in a group of 4-6 to develop a plan on how to create a Mini Horror Movie (30 seconds - 2 minutes). Begin by creating a storyboard showing a traditional 3 act structure, and put a twist in to surprise the audience. If it's dialogue heavy, create a script to help your actors. This film should be school appropriate and can include any subgenres such as:
If you are working in a group, design a Gantt Chart (video coming soon) so that you can see everyone's schedule on one document. Create a rubric for the project, requirements being that it contains the teachers “must have” list if they worked on that aspect and equal 100 points total. Categories with stars must be on everyone’s rubric since they worked on the story together.
I tend to recommend students film with a DSLR to do lens effects, but use the camera of your choice. Even a cellphone works if it makes the difference between you making a movie and not making one!
Import the footage using Premiere Pro or Davinci Resolve. See the included video on instructions on how to use Premiere (which I'd prefer if you have it since it is more of an industry standard)
Good luck and send me any questions!
