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 award-winning director, Assal Ghawami. We’ll work together in small film crews, readying our masterpieces for screening at the P.S./I.S. 187 Film Festival.

This workshop is sponsored the P.S. 187 Parent Teacher Organization for students of P.S. 187.
