Explore ways to tell a story and bring your creative aspirations to the screen!
This precollege program is designed for high school students interested in writing, directing, editing, and acting in original short movies, while learning the art of visual storytelling.
Our remote workshops are interactive, creative learning experiences where students will participate, from home, in every class, and interact with their teacher and classmates, as they create original film work.
Each lesson will feature live instruction, pre-taped examples and slideshows, as well as small group breakout meetings, and web-based support for independent practice.
Suggested Camera and Software
A DSLR, mirrorless camera, camcorder, or fairly new smartphone that shoots video.
A free editing program such as iMovie or DaVinci Resolve.
A free screenwriting app such as WriterDuet, Fade In, Highland, or Celtx.
