Video is, undoubtedly, the pre-eminent storytelling medium of our age, particularly true of the generation now coming of age. In this dynamic workshop, teens will have the opportunity to make their own videos, discover their creative voice and use it to tell a story of their choosing. All equipment will be provided to guide participants through scriptwriting, storyboarding, directing, shooting, scoring and editing their video. Beginning students, as well as those with some filmmaking background, will find this to be a valuable and enjoyable creative experience with applications to school projects and presentations, as well as personal aesthetic expression. Please note: the Sunday session includes admission to the screening of the film festival’s Eli & Ben (see film description on pages X of this brochure). The class will convene in the lobby prior to the film, view the film together and proceed to a classroom to discuss the film after the screening.
A portion of the Teen Film Class has been generously underwritten by the Rose Youth Foundation.
Crossing the Divide: A Film Class for Adults
Mondays, 6:30- 8:30 p.m.
Feb 8. –May 10 (No Class on March 29, April 5)
These days, it’s not the Generation Gap we talk about, it’s the Digital Divide. Come cross the Divide in the MACC’s first Filmmaking class for Adults. We’ll explore film theory and film culture then go on to learn the raft of moviemaking. Working in small groups, participants will, over the course of the class, make a movie and premiere it on the last day of class. Through this process, you will discover your inner Orson Welles. Please note that the February 15 session begins at 5:15 includes the screening of A Matter of Size.
