Filmmaking Intensive for Teens

Class Description

In this week-long class we will be making short films from start to finish. The course -- perfect for aspiring writer/directors -- will be a mix of lectures on the technique and theory behind various cinematic specialties (writing, directing, cinematography, editing, sound design, lighting) and hands-on experimentation with these specialties. Students will break up into groups (depending on the size of the class), come up with ideas, and then each group will write, direct, shoot, and edit its own film of up to five minutes. After the course, on a date to be determined, the class will throw its own class film festival.
No experience with screenwriting or film production is required. Those who have taken film classes before will have the opportunity to push their skills further! Students should bring computers and memory cards if they have them, but all other equipment, including cameras, will be provided.

SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES:

Grub Street is happy to be able to offer a limited number of full scholarships for our teen writing camps. To apply for a scholarship, please complete and submit this online form describing why you want to take the teen writing camp and detailing your financial need. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is Friday, August 7th at 5pm.

*If you are registering on behalf of your teen, add their email information in the “For a Friend or Child?” field on the right-hand side of the screen before you check out. This will send them a direct link and reminder to create their own profile with GrubStreet.

(After adding the class to your cart, click "Checkout" and click “Add” next to “For a Friend or Child?” on the right-hand side to fill in their email. This is an easy way of linking the class to your child and encourages them to create their own account.)
Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better. Scholarships cannot be applied retroactively.

We ask that instructors enable closed captioning and send a transcript of the session after class. You can also enable closed captioning at any time during the meeting. If your instructor forgets to send the transcript, just send ’em an email!
