Remote and In Control: Spy Hop Live in Your Classroom
In-Person and Virtual Assemblies
In-Person or Virtual Intensive Workshops
These STEAM based Digital Media Intensives introduce smaller groups of students (up to 10) to professional audio, design, animation, film production, and more! The goal for each student is to produce a complete piece of media by the end of the workshop. Spy Hop teaching artists work closely with teachers throughout the workshop to produce unique experiences that are tailored to the curriculum and thematic needs of the class. These intensives are offered for grades 5 and above and are typically comprised of 3 to 4 one-hour-long sessions. Student’s work will be shared publicly online, and students are given the opportunity to showcase and curate their projects. By nature, these programs produce widely varied experiences for students and teachers and a variety of finished media arts projects.
Spy Hop Intensive Options
The Filmmaking Intensive walks students through the entire process of film production, beginning with an idea and culminating in a finished project. Students are challenged to write scripts and shot lists, and create storyboards. Once their pre-production is finished, students are mentored, and are walked through the editing process, using free web-based programs, in order to arrange and tell their stories.
Materials & Gear Needed:
- Internet access
