Kingwood College Makes A Movie

Students enrolled in Lone Star College-Kingwood's Visual Communication Summer Film Workshop spent their summer making a movie. The short movie entitled "Switched" was the culmination of an eight-week course offered for advanced video students.

The students enrolled in the workshop have taken most of their video and post-production courses needed for their degree and/or certificate including: lighting for film and video, field production, digital video and advanced digital video. 

During the first four weeks of the workshop the students worked on pre-production, production, and the actual shooting of the movie. The second four weeks the focus was on post-production, which included the editing and graphics for the movie. 

Taught by the team of instructor Isaac Garza and professor Jason Ford, the goal was to provide students with "real world experience" by working on a film as if it had a multi-million dollar budget.

"The class was all hands on, from lighting scenes, camera setups to making graphics in After Effects," said Garza.

Garza, who is the also the owner of Scorpion Productions, will be teaching the FLMC 1304 Lighting for Film or Video course in the fall. He has been in the film and video production business since 1988 and has worked on everything from feature films, commercials, concerts and music videos.
