Continuing Education is offering two week-long summer programs for Wilton kids interested in TV, video and film production. Taught by Miller-Driscoll first grade teacher Brian Ennis and Miller-Driscoll paraprofessional and webmaster Skip Ploss, these two new summer options offer young TV and film makers a hands-on opportunity to learn about short subject and digital production studio programs.
Participants learn the process of creating professional videos for broadcast online on the program’s blog and Vimeo Channel. They will also learn vocal skills, including projection and speaking clearly on camera. All this while learning how to create, script, edit, plan camera shots/storyboard and be “On Air.” Students will also create trailers, reviews, movies, commercials and much, much more!
MDTV Summer is offered to students entering grades K-2, July 17-21 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., at the Cider Mill Library Learning Commons. The cost to participate in the program is $275.
On-Air Level I & II is offered to students entering grades 3-5, July 24-28 from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. and/or 12-3 p.m., at the Cider Mill Library Learning Commons. The cost to participate in this program is $275 for one session (morning or afternoon), and $475 for both morning and afternoon sessions.
During the school year, MDTV and MDTV/2 currently “broadcast” on a blog. The videos are hosted on Vimeo. MDTV/2, offered after school through Wilton Continuing Education, is now part of every morning broadcast at Miller-Driscoll School.
Wilton Continuing Education week-long summer programs begin Monday, June 26 and run through August 25. There’s something for everyone in STEM, sports, fitness & recreation, fine arts and specials interests. Visit the Continuing Education (Summer Programs) webpages for more information and to register.
