Tuesdays for Fall, Winter & Spring
5:00pm to 6:00pm
6:00pm to 7:30pm/8:00pm Optional Time

This program is a year-long arc where we break down making movies into all the parts, from writing, design, and production planning, to being on set, to editing and post, with the goal of making a refined short film by the end of the school year.

Optional Time is for Production Time, Editing, & Film Screening.

  • Fall-We will alternate between practicing filmmaking techniques and screening films from a variety of moviemaking traditions to open your concept of what filmmaking can be.
  • Winter-We encourage you to assist us during Acting for the Screen to learn and practice framing and actor coaching. You may also join Social Media Shorts or work on developing your spring projects.
  • Spring-Production Time! We’ll work in groups on planning and producing your short films. You may also assist in Making Music Videos.

This series will include some production time off-site in the spring. This will be scheduled at the convenience of the students and will require some parent chaperones.

No prior experience is required. Groups will be organized according to age and interest. Focused and sincerely interested 4th graders may also join with prior permission. EMAIL US to discuss your student.
