Freeney came up with the idea of Film Club, instead of just watching movies, students should have an opportunity to make movies. to make a few movies. According to Freeney, he was given the idea from his mentor Mrs. Martin. Thus something clicked in his mind and then before he knew it he became president of a renewed club called “Film Club” on May of 2018.

“I had made a couple films but they were never the best,” Freeney said. “One common struggle was doing it by myself. I decided to create the Film club as a way to make films as a community but also inspire others to try and make their own films, teaching them what they need to know along the way(from my personal experiences especially).”

Freeney renewed the club by adding in one new feature, the option to make movies. Previously the club only watched movies but Freeney decided to take a different approach for the club by giving students an opportunity to make movies of any kind as the students see fit.

However, according to Mr. Marshall Moellers (overseer of club) the club has a lack of better equipment and technology to produce films efficiently and at a faster rate. Students can now get together with friends and make any type of movies one could want such as anime, live-action, computer animated etc. In short, students can bring imagination to reality.

The process of making films goes like this; a student will get into a group of four to five students total and together decide what kind of movie the group will make. Then, when all are agreed, the group will report to Freeney or Moellers to seek approval (to make sure the film is possible to make). Next the group will assign themselves a role such as writer, photographer, researcher, actor and location finder. After that each member will perform the assigned roles and begin to write, film and perform the movie. Finally when the draft of the film is complete, the members must finalize everything and then edit the whole draft and at last the film is complete. 

If interested, students should head down to room 112 on Tuesday or Friday at four and begin the session! As Peyton said “One must dream about an idea and then chase after that dream. Plan, storyboard, recruit actors, film, edit and make magic. Creating films definitely isn’t as simple as that but it’s one way.”
