Part of Lesson Plan: 14 Shots
Activity Overview / Details
First, explain the importance of camera skills and knowledge in video production. Without quality camera work and shots, it is nearly impossible to produce a high quality video of any kind.
Explain to your students they will be learning (and building off of prior knowledge) what each of these shots and compostion rules are and then working in teams of four to produce a short video that will be assessed and graded by you the instructor.
For the hook I will be showing two finished project videos from students in the previous year's class. The first time you do this lesson you can show my 2 examples, but after that you will want to use examples made from your own students in class.
As students are viewing these videos ask them to think about whether or not the videos demonstrated proper camera shots and composition rules in video production.
Last, I will show a video off YouTube called " " this video has more compostion rules and demonstrates a wider variety of shots than my students "14 shots" videos.
