Final Projects

We see professionally produced video every day. Most of us don’t consider all the levels of expertise that go into producing a film project.

Once you come up with an interesting idea, the real work begins. Writing, shot planning, lighting, sound, filming, editing… It’s quite a process for a beginning film student to pull together. Here are some of the final projects produced by the students in our inaugural digital video class. They did some amazing work! Check it out!


This video features some amazing lightsaber effects! We don’t always understand the amount of work that goes into special effects. You’ll notice that not all of the shots featuring lightsabers have the lightsaber effect. Consider that these effects are added frame by frame. At 30 frames per second and two lightsabers in a shot…that’s 60 individual edits that each take a minute or so…for each SECOND of video…when you’re really in the groove.


A great story about the universal struggle for junk food. No students were hurt in the making of this film…the donuts were not so lucky!


Were you properly prepared to see Avengers: Infinity War? If you weren’t, here’s the low down on everything you should review to understand the latest Marvel marvel.


Watch as music phenom group Basa Basa produces promotional shirts for their band…backwards. The retro VHS rewind effect was very time intensive…and impressive!


Have you ever seen a game of Mahjong? Here’s your chance! Note that some segments failed to render properly (red segments)…video is temperamental sometimes! We’ll update the link if we get a cleaned up version.


Graduating senior, Smitty, shares some reflections on himself and his time at CLHS. The video concludes with the hit single, CalLu!
