OnAir! Summer

Shooting our interviews using TouchCast
OnAir! Summer is a five day summer program currently offered at Cider Mill School for students going into kindergarten through 5th grade. The program is run through the auspices of Wilton Continuing Education and is led by the advisors from MDTV.

During this program, students learn skills that allow them to create video projects on their own. They create three short films in five days!

Currently those projects include:

  1. An iMovie Trailer
  2. An editorial using FlipGrid.
  3. A TouchCast interview on a virtual set.
  4. A Pizza Box Green Screen project.

Students from K through 5th grade 
worked together planning their 
iMovie Trailer shot lists.

During the five days the students are also exposed to and use other video equipment ranging from consumer video cameras to GoPro Hero 4s and Sony professional video cameras.They learn different types of video shots as well as the scripting, planning, team work and logistics of needed to get their project completed.

Below are a few more pictures from summer 2017.
