I'm a former (and future) homeschooler who has had the
privilege for several years of working with Advent Film
Group, a Christian film production company who has strong
ties with the homeschool community and who has helped train
interns (mostly homeschoolers) on the sets of their
productions for over five years. We have just helped to
found a new ministry called Advent Filmmakers, which will be
featuring weekly training posts on an interactive blog where
students can come to learn and interact with us and other
filmmakers. September's posts will be dedicated to a special
series on cinematography. If your student is interested in
learning more about filmmaking, we welcome him or her to
join us! Below are our two cinematography tracks (for
beginners and intermediate learners) and the schedule for
September. We hope to see you there!
