Welcome to The Helpful Art Teacher, an interdisciplinary website linking visual arts to math, social studies, science and language arts.

Learning how to draw means learning to see. A good art lesson teaches us not only to create but to look at, think about and understand our world through art.

Six Rules of Video Composition

Once you have completed your shot list, edit all your clips together using Final Cut Pro. At the beginning of each shot create a title, using the directions in the video below, with the name of each shot. 

Create transitions between each shot by following the directions in the video below:

Use simple transitions and titles that do not distract your audience from the quality of your video shots. In other words, make sure that the subject of your video is your camera work, not the transitions and titles you add later. The idea is for the transitions, edits and titles to be smooth, so that they highlight your work. They should enable you to better tell your story without overshadowing it.

Creating a Storyboard:
Print out the storyboard template below and make as many copies as you need. Use the storyboard to plan out your story and map out your script.
