This online workshop is perfect for kids just starting to make their own movies or even returning students who want to brush up on their skills and work on a collaborative project. Each day of the week guides kids through the stages of filmmaking from pre to post production. Monday starts with a brainstorming and script writing session with groups of 5 or fewer kids working together on a short film. Tuesday’s lesson will include storyboarding and camera angles to give kids the skills they need to shoot on their own. Wednesday and Thursday offer introductory and advanced editing lessons. We use an online editing platform that gives all students access to the same project. On Friday we conduct a final polish as a class and host a virtual screening party for kids and their families! Classes run from 9:00 to 11:30 am with a 15 minute snack/stretch break and fun film-centric games to break up the day. Afternoons are deliberately left open to give kids the chance to work on their scenes at their own pace. Enrollment includes complimentary access to our online learning platform with all of our video tutorials. Each session ends with an amazing kid-created masterpiece for you to share with friends and family!
