Introduction to Film Making.
Davis, Robert E.
This booklet is intended for teachers who are now teaching units in film production as part of a program in communication or who wish to begin work with filmmaking in such a program. The first section is intended to serve as a brief introduction to film theory, while a major portion of the rest of the booklet is devoted to film projects which may be used with classes. Exercises included for teachers without access to filmmaking equipment may be carried out with pencils, paper, and other readily available classroom materials. Other exercises using super-8 cameras and equipment are also suggested, as are activities using videotape recorders and still cameras in place of motion picture equipment. All exercises and activities are designed for adaptation to grade and ability levels by the teacher. (LL)
