Video Narrative Curriculum: Moment of Truth

Posted on Jun 24, 2014 by Adobe Youth Voices Last updated on Jun 7, 2017


Youth media in action

In this 8-session video production curriculum, youth use video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere Elements, to create a narrative film. Narrative is a special kind of filmmaking that allows for a lot of play and perspective-taking, as youth explore different points of view in telling their story. Young people will reflect on a real or imagined moment of conflict as inspiration for their work.

Educators will find facilitation tips and strategies in this and in other resources from the collection. Learn to help youth utilize media tools to translate their ideas into a compelling story that captures real feelings and emotions.

Throughout the curriculum selected youth media projects are referenced to watch and reflect on. This collection of youth media can be found on the Create with Purpose Vimeo Channel.
