The world of true crime has captured the attention of people all over the world, including many of us at LightHouse! I have taught a few true crime classes, and we always have a blast. So – let’s continue it into the summer!

This deep dive is going to be a lot more than just my storytelling (although we will have that too). We will also listen to 911 calls, interviews, check out crime scenes, and watch documentaries and true-crime movies. We will talk about some notorious cases, cases that you have never heard of, and put on our detective hats to theorize.

This class is great for students who want to catch up or get ahead on their credits. It is also great for true crime buffs like me! I can’t wait to see you as we examine the question everyone asks when analyzing crime – WHY?

I am a huge movie fanatic! Movies are often a great escape from reality. Film also reflects changes in history – so studying film history is like watching a movie in itself!

This remote, online course is going to take a dive into the history of film and discuss topics such as:

the first movie camera
illusions
the birth of feature films
german expressionism
soviet montage
silent era
the golden age
home video
screenplays
pre-production
sound production
cinematography
special effects
editing
marketing
film school!

$80/week

This course is for: students who love movies, students who want to catch up on credits, students who want to learn more about movies, and everyone in between! There will be optional notetaking, discussion, and of course, movie watching! Bring your popcorn, and I hope to see you there.
