Make a short documentary film and see it on the big screen!

Making documentary films isn’t easy — whether you’re in a war zone or in your back yard – but it’s one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet! A powerful documentary film or web video can bring life to a story, social issue, or celebration like no other. Films can move minds, alter policy, change lives and expose injustices – but it has to be done with purpose, mindfulness and compassion in order to be effective.

In this two-day workshop (March 15 & 16) we will learn how to explore issues, story and themes through storyboarding, cinematography, editing, soundscape and music. Breaking out into roles – director, cinematographer, soundperson, editor, etc. — we’ll work together to create 3-5 minute short documentaries, that address issues that matter to you! And we’ll have an awesome time doing it! Films made in this workshop will be screening at King’s Theatre on Friday March 19 at 7pm.

Ages: 12-18

REQUIRED to bring: Your own camera phone & a brown bag lunch.
Workshops will take place at the theatre and on site in the community, so dress for the weather.
Deadline to sign up: March 12.
