We had a small group today but we got a lot of work done!  Really proud of everyone's creations!

Movie Time!

Here's the first batch of finished video clips we got from our editors today!

More to come in the coming weeks, but our video project is primarily over.  We'll have to wait until later next month our editors will have a chance to get back into their projects.

Post Production Reduction

We had a big reduction in numbers today.  Less than half the class decided to show up, but luckily everyone who was making a movie had their footage already in the can.

So editing continued to go and some of our editors almost have a finished product to showcase!

We'll fix it in post Pt. II: Electric Boogaloo!

Today we finished filming two of three groups and began digital film editing in Adobe Premier. Things are looking pretty good so far!

Plus, we were graced with the added blessing of having two (COUNT 'EM: TWO!) of our veteran/aged out/prospective high school student/former PNG participants: Abdo and Christian (The Knight) come in and be mentor assistants (see third photo).

Here are some photos of today's work:

Shoot 'em up

Despite some serious storyboard issues, we actually got a few of our groups to start shooting their movies today.

I have a lot of hope that these directors are going to produce some awesome movies, but we're already running over schedule.  The producers are upset, but hopefully we'll make it up in post.

Stop! Camera Time

Today the students dipped their toes into the world of shooting and editing video.  We've got 3 different projects going on today.  A fake movie trailer, a short scene from a murder mystery and a Star Wars parody.

I can't wait to see the end results.  I hope some of these groups haven't bitten off more than they can chew!

Before they can film and edit anything they first have to come up with a plan and planning everything out is the hard part.

PNG Painted

We got to see some really awesome results from our new crew of PNG students.  Their faces were shot, printed, traced, scanned and painted.  After they were finished we went back and created backgrounds for them to be placed on.

Turned out really well!

PNG Summer Start!

Today was the first day of PNG Summer 2014!

We introduced ourselves to each other and we got the kids introduced to the computers.  We have a bunch of students who are eager to be here and get started working on cool projects and making cool things! Exciting!

We started off the list of projects with our tried but true Paint Your Face project where kids take a selfie, print it, trace it, scan it, and then paint it!

We'll keep going next time, but we got about halfway done this time around.
