Although Delbert loves making videos, he has never been trained to do it. Delbert and I got the chance to be learning all about film making with Online Christian Filmmakers Academy from Family Gravity Media, a division of Families For Christ Ministries, Inc. thanks to being a part of the Homeschool Review Crew. This has been a fun adventure for us.
About Online Christian Filmmakers Academy
Ken and Zack, a father-son team, created the Online Christian Filmmakers Academy as an online film making training program for someone who wants to learn all about filming from the comfort of their own home at their own pace. This program is made up of five different modules. Each module is broken down into simpler sections for easier digestion of the details.
I found this program to be full of valuable information. The Online Christian Filmmakers Academy covers everything from the differences in cameras and their lenses to completely finishing the production of a movie. The lessons are thorough and easy to follow. It doesn’t take long to get through the courses either. You can complete the entire course within 5 hours. However, I did find that it’s fair simpler to do these lessons in chunks.
I believe it’s safe to say that the favorite feature that he learned was the Green Screen concept. He feels that will help him the most in making his videos in the future. He can’t wait to get his own “green screen” to put up for his “video recording” stage. We haven’t figured out where we’re going to set that up for him and myself quite yet. However, it is something we do want to in the future because I do want to jump into the videoing world more.
I believe once we do get our video area set up completely that he’ll want to dive into this course some more. He’s already eager to play around what he’s learned more than he already has.
Overall, I do feel that this course is worth getting for anyone interested in becoming a filmmaker. I love the fact that it’s been created by a set of Christian men. I know they have made this course affordable so that everyone who has something they want to share with the world can. Right now, I feel more Christians need to get our message out in the world more. It’s become a bit of a concern to me even more so lately.
