People have forgotten how to tell a story. Stories don’t have a middle or an end any more. They usually have a beginning that never stops beginning. –Steven Spielberg

Through engaging projects, participants enter into the world of the narrative and character development. Participants will learn about scriptwriting, acting, directing, production, camerawork, movie editing, animation, and character development. Film has become the main artistic avenue of expression in our culture and therefore it is vital that the youth learn how to use this medium to express beauty, goodness, and truth.
