4-H clover 4-H video and filmmaking project

You can use videos in your daily life, for school projects or in a future career. Videography is art, communications and technology all at the same time. 

Becoming good at making videos teaches media literacy -- the ability to fully understand media messages that come at us every day. 

What can you do?

In the video and filmmaking project, you can:

  • Showcase various video/film techniques. 
  • Create a poster illustrating how a video/film camera works.
  • Use Claymation, dolls or Legos to create a stop-action video/film.
  • Film a documentary on environmental issues such as the plight of pollinators, pollution, soil erosion or the steps taken to improve the environment.
  • Develop a trailer for a movie or event (can be fictional).

These are just some of the many ways you can participate in this project.
