SFU partners with Kwantlen Park Secondary for summer school film course

August 09, 2019

Students from Kwantlen Park Secondary presented their summer school projects at a film screening and award ceremony on July 26 at SFU Surrey.

The Surrey School District, Kwantlen Park Secondary School and SFU Surrey teamed up for the first ever collaborative summer school focusing on film-making. Students took part part in a four-week, hands-on crash course in making their own one-minute movies. 

The 12 students in Kwantlen Park's Summer Film Program learned about scripting and storyboarding, shot and scene design, camera work, audio recording, green-screening, editing, effects and post-production. They will also gain an ADST credit in Media Design. The course culminated with a movie showcase in SFU’s auditorium in front of parents and staff, with awards being presented for best film, director, audio, cinematography and actor.

SFU's School of Interactive Arts and Technology in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology is provided the camera gear for this summer school, and they will be donating it to the school at the end of program.
