The TV/Film production program at King’s Ridge Christian School continues to expand as Atlanta becomes a leader in the industry. On-camera acting experience is gained from Lower School through High School. As students look to pursue professional work, on-site camera audition taping is available with professional direction by Kathy Winchell. In addition, casting agents are contacted based on recommendations to seek representation.
Lower School offers a comprehensive, state-of-the-art curriculum with Tiger TV. With over ten years of broadcasting, Tiger TV inspires students in production, broadcasting, writing, and teleprompter. The students create content, develop scripts, and execute a Lower School broadcast daily. View recent episodes of Tiger TV.
Middle School builds on the skills gained in Lower School Tiger TV and begins to explore the craft and discipline of TV/Film. The focus is storytelling. The process-based program values a workshop of ideas and critique and is designed to hone a student’s voice and ideas and their ability to communicate both to an audience. Students are given hands-on experience with equipment and taught Final Cut Pro before entering High School.
High School expands into a diverse experience through media in screenwriting, producing, cinematography, audio production, editing, and critique skills. Collaboration and interpersonal skills are developed through short films and individual and group projects. Students learn video camera techniques, Final Cut Pro editing (Premier editing depending on skill level), basic motion picture critique skills, and pre-production (treatment writing, storyboarding, and proposals) to create traditional and experimental projects. In addition, students learn producer-director relationships and develop planning and implementation skills. Each semester may shift between documentary, narrative, and experimental filmmaking.
