I will be updating the course description again shortly. For example, for
those of you joining us for this course: think of what you would like to
produce for your short film. Think of a sci-fi script. I will also have several
ideas. Use your imagination. Maybe make use of the cafe or halls in the
Middle School.
Maybe there is an alien in the school and you are chasing it or hiding from it.
Or maybe you like flying star fighters. The ideas are endless.
