Virtual Moviemaking Merit Badge

 

What: Moviemaking includes the fundamentals of producing motion pictures, including the use of effective light, accurate focus, careful composition (or arrangement), and appropriate camera movement to tell stories. In earning the badge, Scouts will also learn to develop a story and describe other pre- and postproduction processes necessary for making a quality motion picture.

 Meet your CounselorsLee Estes earned his Bachelor's degree in Communication from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and is an Eagle Scout from Troop 53 Mattapoisett. He was a Cachalot Scout Reservation staff member for 7 summers and is currently a Program Specialist for the 1910 District of Narragansett Council. Lee is an avid cinematographer and enjoys sharing his passion for Moviemaking with scouts.

 

       

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members

HOW:  This Merit Badge will be taught in a virtual classroom. The class has a capacity of 15 Scouts. Small classroom size provides all students with the opportunity to share and interact with the counselors and other Scouts. Scouts should be prepared to be challenged and to join the conversation! Participants who do not engage with the class may not receive credit for the badge. Scouts must be prompt for all badge sessions. Late participants may not receive credit for all requirements.

Before beginning work on any merit badge, scouts are to have a discussion with their unit leader regarding the specific badge and counselor.

WHEN: This class will be held virtually over two sessions:

June 8, 2020 3:00PM-4:30PM EST.

June 10, 2020 3:00PM-4:30PM EST.

Scouts must attend both sessions to complete the offered requirements.

After registering, Scouts will receive a link and login information via email the day class is scheduled. Scouts will also receive instructor details that can be used to connect to the counselor on Scoutbook. This assures that completed requirements are easily recorded. 

PREREQUISITES:  2D2 or 2D3

Camera (smartphone, camcorder, etc.), pen or pencil, and paper
