Students will come up with their own idea, storyboard, learn how to use action VFX, and shoot sequences. In post-production, they'll edit their movies, add music, and create their own sound effects!

Day 2

Green Screens & Puppeteering!

Day-two is all about creating characters & taking them on crazy adventures! Students will create their own custom puppets and experiment with green screens for the first time, allowing them to put any background they wish in their films.

At the end of day-two, students will make movie posters for their films!
