  • No Comments

      Surrealist works feature the
element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions with a dreamlike
quality. Students will explore surrealistic artists and the genre
to develop and create their own understanding of surrealism by
shooting picture directed photos and then summarizing their
learning in a video featuring their opinions and photo work.

     This lesson requires prior knowledge of
a video editing program and computer photo editing basics. It uses
Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premier or similar video editing program,
Audacity, a free sound recording program, a digital camera, a
microphone, a digital video camera and a tripod. Students need to
import digital photos into the computer via USB cable and import
video into the computer via firewire cable. And then be able to
export the results.
