A Saturday class for teens interested in making films and having a voice.
Students age 13 to 18 work in depth on creating short films that stem from their daily experiences. Though the class will decide on an idea as a group, the themes of culture, identity, and roots will be central. Students will learn how to storyboard, how to film using professional grade equipment, and how to edit using video editing software. The class will be a series of 8 Saturdays (1.5 hours each) with short, fun activities to complete between class days. The goal of the class is for students to be confident in both their video skills and in their creative voice, to learn how to collaborate and how to carry a film project to its completion.
No video experience necessary just a passion to learn film and a commitment to attend every class.
