From Brain to Screen: Exploring Your Creative Process
Starts July 25
Ages 11-14. July 25-29, 1-4pm
In this brainstorming class, students will dive deep into their personal creative processes using unique and unusual methods: journaling, sculpting, writing, collaboration, improv, and more. Through these processes, they will explore themes such as character development, authentic setting, and the journey from struggle to resolution. Students will leave this class with a better understanding of the pre-production process and what kinds of creative methods they enjoy.
A note about Covid: As it stands, the plan for this course is to be in-person. FilmNorth will be monitoring the state of Covid and making decisions about safety as the situation unfolds. This course may be adapted to an online format if things are deemed unsafe.
