Lessons for Filmmakers

“We are currently in the midst of an explosion of video and filmmaking by young people,” Youth Media Distribution (YMDI) reports. “Giving these young filmmakers the tools they need to get their artistic work out to the public is essential.” YMDI does just that with lessons for youth media educators that guide students through the earliest stages of film planning to distributing their work. Lessons are intended to be used with individual students who already have some training in filmmaking or videography—they do not include basic filming or editing techniques, for instance.
