VHS Movie Making

VHS-C Movie Making Class
In this hands-on, 6 week class, local filmmaker, and
professional animator, Tim Smyth, will teach the art of visual
As a group, students will conceive, plan, perform in, and film,
a short movie, or two. The movies will be no longer than 4
minutes, and will rely on visuals, instead of sound, to tell
their stories. Using the limitations of VHS-C cameras, students
will have to think more about how movies are made, as they will
shoot their movies in script order, editing in camera, as they
go. There will be no later fixing in the computer.
It will be a fun exercise in having to go without modern
conveniences. Without the use of dialog, or sound in any way,
students will discover what a truly visual medium movies can be.
The first 5 days of class will be spent making the movies, the
6’th and final class day will be a premier for family and
friends, as the finished movies will be shown in glorious VHS.
