Short Cuts

Starts June 19

Ages 11-14. June 19-23, 1:00-5:00 pm

The perfect camp for the future director! Students will create two short films over the course of the week. You’ll be introduced to the filmmaking process through an introductory artist’s statement film, then add further production value in creating video poem shorts. You’ll learn how to develop and storyboard a film idea, direct and shoot a production with professional gear, and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro on iMacs. No previous experience necessary.

Tuition: $240

Her work has been featured in Altered Esthetics, MNKino, Cinema Lounge, Feminist Video Quarterly, and Video Variant. Lizzie enjoys reading, writing, snail mail, and exploring the city by bike and bus.
