Intro to Digital Filmmaking For Teens

In this five-day hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to create a film from start to finish. Participants will work together to create a short film that we will shoot and edit over the course of the workshop, taking turns in directing, shooting, lighting, acting and editing. Participants will learn how to operate more sophisticated camera, lighting and sound equipment, as well as basic video editing techniques on professional video editing software.
