Want to make blockbuster movies, exciting Youtube videos or just want to record home movies with you and your pets? This class will teach you filmmaking basics from an experienced videographer!

Todd Pic In ClassMy name is Todd Tevlin and not only am I an artist and photographer, I’ve also been a videographer for over twenty years and have worked in video production as well as a couple small independent films that were shot in the St. Louis, Missouri area.

KCW Class PicIn 2015 I started teaching my KIDS COMIC WORKSHOP to 8-11 year olds in the St. Louis, MO area. Since that time, I’ve added after school and homeschool classes as well as Girl Scout badges. It’s become my new career and I will keep adding more classes!

This 75 minute class teaches your girls how to frame a shot, understand filmmaking terms, write scripts, shot lists, storyboarding, camera tips, lighting and sound, and editing. All of this allows them to make one video in class and another as homework. Lastly, they get to watch a 3 minute video that I created with my son where he battles Godzilla, showing the girls how it all works!

PLEASE NOTE: This class requires everyone to bring a device that can shoot video (cell phone, tablets, video cameras, etc)

ALSO: Because they have to edit their videos, I’ve found a free editing app for Android / iOS that everyone will need to download on their device prior to class. Once you sign up I will send you links.

LASTLY: There WILL be homework as they will have to shoot a second video at home and edit it.

What I teach will meet these badge requirements:

Step One: (Choices 1 & 2)
Connect with local expert / take a class.
Step Two: (Choice 3)
Film a day in your life.
Step Four: (Choices 1 & 2)
Work solo or with friends.
Step Five: (Choice 1 &/or 2)
Add a sound track or title/credits.
Step Three: (Choices 1, 2, or 3)
Share a scene from a book in public domain, share a cause, or share a family story.

KCW Class PicI have a flexible schedule and can teach this at your next Girl Scout meeting anywhere in the St. Louis area. This 75 minute course is $10.00 per Girl Scout and provides everything but the devices the girls use. I accept Credit Cards and Cash. No checks please.

Four reasons:

1) EXPERIENCE: I’m an experienced videographer who will actually teach your girls how to shoot better videos. Those places make you shoot videos before hand and will only help you edit them on their devices, or they make the girls shoot a commercial-like video showcasing their products. They don’t actually teach you how to shoot better videos, which is kind of important for this badge! You get what you pay for!

2) NO WAIT TIMES: You will be on a 6-12+ month wait list with them, with me you can have class a week after registering if that’s what you need.

3) NO EXTRA TRAVEL: Why pile girls into vehicles to go to a sub-par class at a retailer when I will drive to your meeting place to teach my quality class instead!

4) SUPPORT LOCALLY: These retailers only want you to play with their products so you will buy them, whereas I’m a small business owner trying to make a living with teaching classes like this.

! P L E A S E   N O T E !
If you’re meeting is in GREEN circle, a minimum of THREE Girl Scouts are needed for class. YELLOW circle needs minimum of FIVE and there is an additional $10 charge due to distance traveled. RED circle needs a minimum of TEN, and there will be an additional $20 charge due to distance traveled. Anything outside of these circles is too far for me to travel to, sorry!

Troop not big enough? Team up with another local troop around you and I’ll teach them all at once!
