After School Enrichment Class – Mustang Film Festival

Film production scene with movie clapboardThe Mustang Film Festival is an after school enrichment class where students work to film a short video that is screened before a panel of judges who decide on Best Picture, Best Editing, Best Sound, etc. After being trained in the basics of video production and editing, students create a storyboard, script, recruit actors, choose costumes, and film and edit footage. There is a quick turn around and students are expected to adhere to deadlines. The hard work is worth it when students receive the appreciation from the authentic audience of judges.
