SWMS Cinematic Studies Program

We are excited to open a communications focused Choice Program for students in grades 6-8 at Southwest Middle School. This program will explore the history of mass media, terminology, safety, basic equipment, script writing, storyboarding, and production teams. A close look at planning, writing, directing, recording and editing a production, graphic communications, and professional ethics, will encompass the real-world, hands on projects completed in the course work. In addition, students will acquire a fundamental understanding of the media and film industry in the Savannah area, region, state, and beyond. This program will also serve as a pipeline to other Choice Programs at the high school level.
