Shorts X Shorts

Lights, camera ... action! Let’s make a movie (short)! Using the unique language of filmmaking to develop a story in your favorite genre, we’ll start by writing mini-screenplays that will be our filming roadmap. Then we’ll get behind the lens to learn camera techniques, editing and tips of the trade from the directors CJ Gardella and Molly Longwell. We’ll work together in small film crews, readying our masterpieces for a screening at the end of the week.

Parents, please be sure to pack lunch and a water bottle for your child each day!

*Please note, masks will not be required while in the classroom but are mandatory in all common areas of the building. Guardians will be required to fill out additional paperwork related to COVID-19 protocols before their student can attend class. Thank you!
