This lesson will show and discuss the importance of using a video camera to shoot interesting, creative, and meaningful shots. This lesson is similar to the "shots and angles" lesson plan, but covers a new set of composition rules and focuses on hands on skills and demonstrations through small student groups. Students will also have the opportunity to demonstrate basic editing, if they have the prior knowledge in your class. If not, the final assessment will be less formal.
*** In order to do this lesson you must have enough cameras, tripods, and editing computers for the student teams to be able to use. For me with an average class size of 32, I will have 8 teams of 4, and thus will need 8 different cameras and tripods.
