Great experience for building a filmmaking portfolio!

Students collaborate on projects and develop their ideas through the pre-production, production, and post-production process. The club meets during sessions throughout the schoolyear, giving students a chance to see their ideas evolve and gain experience in various aspects of filmmaking. 

Projects are submitted to regional competitions against other midwest high schools and judged by professionals in the media industry. These competitions not only provide students with valuable feedback about their work but also a chance to be recognized for their creative efforts.

Students can join at any time during the year.
For specific meeting times or more information contact  Mr. Meister.
