Envision Cinema Conservatory

Operating much like an independent production company, the video/film conservatory offers an active approach to video and filmmaking technique and theory. Workshops intend to build upon and supplement daily production experience and will be taught by a variety of practicing artists. Initial production assignments include the creation of a promotional video for the Envision program and creating a promotional video for Canyon Crest Academy. Students in the Cinema Conservatory may also assist in a regularly scheduled school television program Thereafter, the main thrust of the program is video and film production. Students will begin developing original screenplays and video projects and will eventually pitch, coordinate, cast, and produce short pieces of their own. The conservatory will then decide to pool resources behind one idea or divide and take upon projects in smaller groups. All projects are intended for submission to student film festivals or video competitions and the final evaluation of the projects will be linked to successful submission.
