Films as Literature

Each year students in Films as Literature class at Washington High School write, produce, film, and edit a movie.  The class is offered to juniors and seniors and is instructed by Jaylene De Vos.  During the Spring Semester there were  24 students involved in the class and 8 movies were produced.   Students use video cameras, music, and the I-Movie program on Mac computers to complete this project.  They also have a lot of fun creating a screenplay based on the groups personal interests.  At the end of the 2014 Fall semester, students in the Films classes viewed and critiqued each student film.  Their final task was to vote on awards for the films.  The Filmey’s are awarded to students in these categories, Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Action, Best Comedy, Best Editing, Best Soundtrack, Best Actor, and Best Actress.
