What began as a class in movie making for my nieces and nephews at the beginning of the quarantine grew into a full movie production. They learned about screenwriting, shot composition, camera movement, focus and exposure, rehearsing, blocking, acting, “roll sound, rolling!, roll camera, rolling!, background action, ACTION!”, trick photography, continuity, costumes, set dressing, sound recording and mixing, ADR, editing, creating titles, scoring, translation and subtitles, final color..and probably (hopefully!) more. I certainly learned new things, such as figuring out how to mix ADR to sound farther away and blend better with the scene. (See if you can pick out the places with ADR, I win if you can’t!). I also learned that my sister Kerry makes a great producer.
