Still to Film Labs
Are taught in the Nantucket High School,
and prepare students for Whaler Media
Alongside Nantucket High School’s Photography II & III classes, taught by Merrill Mason, Nantucket Community Television helps cultivate young filmmakers by providing the opportunity for students to learn how to take their current skills and transition them from photography to video production. Since students are already familiar with the camera, NCTV teaches them how to incorporate cinematic styles using composition and camera movement. The students pick a subject to film and then dive into learning how to edit their projects using Adobe Premiere Pro, an industry standard editing platform.
The end result is an under five minute short film that the students showcase at NCTV and on Channel 18. All students are given student NCTV memberships and are invited to continue to learn the media arts in our Whaler Media Program, funded in part by Cape Cod Five Bank and The Nantucket Golf Club.
