Go behind the scenes of film production

Through films made by young people, students learn more about filmmaking and take away some know-how to inspire their own productions.

This lesson focuses on:

  • student-made film and animation projects
  • the different creative and technical roles involved in filmmaking
  • the technology, tricks and techniques behind the magic of filmmaking
  • going about getting started on a personal or group film project

This is a live virtual lesson run by ACMI Educators. It includes an interactive activity and a range of post-lesson activities for further discovery.
