Film Pathway

To allow students to develop their skill set, not solely as creatives but as academics, we have designed a process that will permit them time to achieve competency in the craft of storytelling: visual, spoken, and written.

Class Structure

Each class is structured to bring in two professionals with different but complementing skill sets: screenwriting, producing, directing, editing to name a few. Each different expertise has at its core the element of storytelling.

Intended to cover a 90 minute class twice a week for 34 weeks, the lesson is a living breathing document that has been designed to align with the ELA/ELD common core, VAPA, and CTE standards in addition to meeting the specific needs of the certified teacher. The film projects are a means to enhance the lessons of the classroom and be completed during class time to develop 21st century skills of both the student and teacher alike.
