Screen Education

The next issue of prestigious Australian magazine Screen Education features an article by Moviestorm founder Matt Kelland about innovative ways to teach movie-making. Drawing on material from his series of books about using Moviestorm to develop film technique, as well as his experiences working with students and teachers on live action films in both the USA and the UK, he discusses how machinima tools such as Moviestorm act as a cheap, easy test-bed for practicing skills. These tools enable students to work solo on specific aspects of film-making, trying the same shot or scene in many different ways to compare the results. They also allow students to film things that would otherwise be impractical on a student budget. When used as a previz tool, they can save time on major shoots, which means that time on set is used much more effectively.

The Winter 2012 issue #66 of Screen Education will be available shortly via their Web site.


Screen Education is a quarterly magazine written by and for teachers and students in primary and secondary schools in all curriculum areas, as well as some areas of tertiary study.
