This is a short camera, shot, writing exercise to allow students to plan and edit before they shoot, and to have students learn to be concise in dialogue, action, movement of camera and actors, also in choosing shot composition, combining shots, look thoroughly at locations, costuming, and props, all in service to tell the story in a single short scene.
This is the curriculum map, standards-aligned, activities, assessments, etc.
Learn to create impactful documentaries and integrate documentary storytelling into your curriculum.
Students are always looking for book suggestions so why not start a collection of book trailers for students to peruse when looking for their next book to read? Using the video-enhancing features of Adobe Premiere Clip — such as music, lighting, and transitions — students create engaging and dramatic book trailers that relate the “feel” of the book and entice readers.

A thesis is the main point of a paper, supported by detail and evidence. In this project, students learn how to develop strong thesis statements; conduct research with primary sources; and gather public domain artifacts to create persuasive and informative video essays. After compiling evidence to support their thesis statements, students use features of Adobe Premiere Clip, such as filters, effects, lighting adjustments, and sound to produce a creative and impactful digital piece.

Students will create a 30-second video to raise awareness about a social issue, relevant to the topic they are studying. They will learn to evaluate effective Public Service Announcements (PSAs), and then collaborate in small groups to create persuasive PSAs; using researched facts, a storyboarding template, and the Adobe Premiere Clip app. Groups will share their PSAs with the class and use a rubric to provide feedback on their peer’s PSAs. PSAs can also be uploaded to the web and shared with a global audience. Note:The lesson plan and associated files are available once you sign in to the Adobe Education Exchange.

Document a comparison between conventional and unconventional garden methods with a time lapse video created in Adobe Premiere Clip. In this lesson, students explore unconventional gardening methods and measure garden inputs and outputs in order to make informed decisions about the most cost effective and efficient methods of horticulture. After growing their crops, students design and build a time lapse video to record their experiment. Time lapse videos can be created for many different high school science projects including documenting chemistry experiments, physics simulations, or the engineering design process. Adapt this lesson to fit your high school science projects. Note: The lesson plan and associated files are available once you sign in to the Adobe Education Exchange.

I have used this exercise with many, many students. It is a powerful activity that will encourage those new to film and challenge experienced filmmakers. This resource introduces the challenge and provides guidance, resources and example to support your students in their task. This Adobe Spark enables students to take the challenges and resources with them in an accessible form on thier smartphone. The 5x5 Filmmaking Challenge Where this challenge really comes into it's own is when used with a group screening and discussion. I send students out to create. We all get back together and critically discuss eachothers work. I have never failed to pull some valuable element for discussion out of a film. Even a collection of 'random shots' can be used to consider narrative and pace. Make sure you let the students themselves talk as much as possible. Act as a 'guide on the side' and challenge your students with questions for discussion. For example: - How do we feel the order of the clips created a narrative? - Why did you choose to shoot the subject in this way? - How does the sound effect the work? These sessions can be great fun and as a lecturer very rewarding. I am always humbled by the creativity of my students and this exercise challenges them to shine!

Interested in hearing from teachers about how they are using the free Adobe CC apps on the IPads to enhance their student outcomes. Looking for some practical examples that would benefit other teachers programs.

Hello All! Below is a link to two playlists i have gathered from across a variety of film tutorial videos on YouTube. The first one is production focused including videos on: camera operation, movement, framing, lighting, white balance and sound recording. The second one is more geared towards Post-production techniques using Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro. These playlists serve as a great reference for my senior Multimedia students when they are undertaking the film unit at school. We use DSLR cameras for all our video work at school. Would love to get feedback on this list and suggestions for other film based tutorials that you find valuable to your teaching!

I work as am a picture book illustrator, animator and teacher. I am excited by the possibilities new technology can bring to art.
I was wondering if anyone is using video clips to provide feedback to students via any E-Learning systems like Blackboard. I was to start doing this in the Fall but wanted to know the pros and cons for doing it.
Hi allI am wondering if you use any warmers/ ice-breaker exercises in your creative learning environment you want to share.Thank you.Have a great day Chris
As more and more interviews are completed remotely and one’s online presence forms the first impression, students need to understand how to present themselves appropriately on camera. This lesson is designed to allow them to become familiar with three basic framing and lighting options, understand the pros and cons of each, and practice applying those to a few choice situations. In teams of two, students will perform three tasks, matching each task to a particular shot type (close-up, medium, or full). Students will appear on camera and also work behind the camera to create brief artifacts demonstrating they can make the correct choices and present appropriately on camera.
