SVN Student Filmmaking Re-Launch

School Video News Announces a New Publication: SVN STUDENT FILMMAKING SVNFilmLogoDarkBG

 SVN STUDENT FILMMAKING is a new companion site to School Video News showcasing student-produced films and the students who created them. SVN STUDENT FILMMAKING will also include articles on all

LucyOneSHot aspects of student film production including script writing, cinematography, audio, lighting, set design, as well as resource listings for film schools, workshops, books, film festivals, and informative, related web links.

In our premier issue, meet Libby Blood, creator, producer, and director of LUCY, an award-winning short film. Watch this amazing film, go behind the scenes with Libby Blood as she tells you about "The Making of LUCY" in her own words and those of cast and crew, and read an in-depth interview with Libby.  

In addition to the directories of film schools and camps where you can browse our alphabetical list of film schools, find profiles on selected schools (more are being added all the time), admissions questions, portfolio questions, and more, SVN Student Filmmaking offers articles by professionals working and teaching in the industry. Every month we will present readers with content spanning the complete spectrum of filmmaking from concept to distribution. Simply visit the ARTICLES tab on the menu bar or check out "related articles" adjacent to all articles.

Make sure you also check out the BOOKS link for great titles from publishers such as Focal Press and Michael Wiese Productions, two of the leaders in filmmaking titles. Visit their sites often as new titles are released regularly.

No matter what your filmmaking interest is, or what your experience level, SVN STUDENT FILMMAKING will have something for you and your students, helping you take your skills and the skills of your students to the next level.

As part of the launch, we invite you to submit student-created trailers and short films along with bios and profiles of the students that created them. These films and profiles will be showcased on this exciting new site which premiers mid-January. As with our other site, SVN-TV, this will be a moderated site to safeguard our readers, viewers and students.

Simply send us an email, including a link to where the film can be seen now. It can be a trailer, short film, documentary, drama, comedy or scary! As long as its student-produced, we want to see it.  When accepted we will want a companion article on the student director along with photos of the behind-the-scenes filmmaking process.

Send your submissions to at your earliest convenience!
