HESPERIA COURSES: (Merket) Period 7
RIVERSIDE COURSES: (Thakeray) Periods 6,7
DESCRIPTION:  This course introduces classic story structure. Movies are not just pictures of people talking. It is a complex puzzle put together under the guise of sound structure. The medium of film is literally a string of moving images where characters engage in conversations that supplement the visuals.   There are three basic parts to every single story, no matter how short or long: the beginning where an introduction to characters are made, set up of conflict and the catalyst; a middle where conflict is worked through; and an end where the conflict is resolved. Within this context students learn to communicate with an audience by hooking their interest, bringing them into the story and making them care about the main character/hero and what happens to them.
