Art 5: Digital Storytelling – Creating Digital Short Videos
40 Weeks, 1 Credit
Prerequisite: At least a two-year sequence in Art, Music or Tech Drawing. Seniors, who are pursuing a visual arts sequence, are given first priority.
In Digital Story Telling, you will learn and practice all the skills necessary to create digital short videos. When we make movies, we are challenged to use all of our smarts and skills to create something truly extraordinary – a visual story that combines words, sounds and images through time. These kinds of stories are about getting the intellect, sense and emotions working together to produce in the viewer a unique experience. Experience is what we want from movies. We want to be moved to laugh or cry, to care or to be frightened, anxious or enraged. You will learn how to “pitch” an idea, and to develop it by writing a treatment, storyboard and finally, a script. Using the script, you will plan a shot list and learn to use lighting, sound and a digital video camera to shoot your film effectively. Finally, you will learn to edit your film on the computer using Adobe Premiere. Throughout the school year, you will produce digital shorts in a variety of genres including advertisements, music videos, documentaries, “mock”umentaries, dramas, comedies, narrative fictions, and personal digital diaries. As film production is a collaborative media, you will learn to work together responsibly as a creative team. You will have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of digital movie production including writing, acting, directing, lighting, set design, costume design, makeup, sound, cinematography, and editing.

Why take art?
Are you interested in taking Art classes in High School?
If yes, why?
If no, why not?
Art teaches endurance
Art students learn to push themselves to complete major works of art. All occupations value perseverance, commitment, dedication, and effort--all of which art students learn through making art!
Art teaches observation
Art students learn to observe, notice small details, and make inferences about them. A variety of professions require keen observation skills - law enforcement, investigation, medical professionals, and scientists are just a few!
Art teaches creative thought.
Art students figure out how to take an assigned art project and come up with multiple solutions to it. Art students also encounter problems during their projects and need to figure out how to resolve them. Problem-solving skills are a necessity in life!
Art is big business.
In two weeks time, Christie's auction house sold $866 million in artworks. Beyond fine art, a vast amount of careers use artists: the video game industry, graphic design, architecture, television & movies, multi-media & animation, interior designers, and photographers to name a few.
Art teaches us to envision.
Art is a place where you can have an idea in your mind and make it come to life. Using our imaginations is greatly undervalued--imagine if Steve Jobs didn't use his imagination. There would be no iPhone!
