Frame, Focus and Fun: an introduction into film making

Join host Christina to get an introduction into film making. Plan a very short story with her that you want to film and recorded it either by holding the camera yourself or with a tripod. Film wither indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather. Star in the short film yourself or Christina is also happy to jump in and be the star under your direction!

Christina has a Canon Vixia camera that she will show you how to use, learn how to focus, where to point the camera and how to get the best shot!

To explore this experience together, we can...: See the camera and learn how to use it.
-: Direct your short film and choose what to record.
-: Plan what you are going to film before you start recording.
-: If the weather is nice we can film outside, there is a lot of nature around Christina's place.

Christina lives in Maple Ridge which might be hard for some Kudoers to get to so check with your circle before requesting this experience. It can take up to 2 hours by Transit with a 15 minute walk to get there so you will probably have to find someone to drive you. Once you get there Christina lives on a hill in a newer residential neighbourhood with lots of big houses close to a forested area where people come to camp in the summer.

Reflection Questions
Did learning about film making change the way you take pictures or take videos? Think about what is in the frame when you take pictures or video, what are you focusing on? What do you want to include in the photo?
