With so much happening around us, yet so much of our world temporarily shut down, there has rarely been a time so ripe for creative expression. The Irvington Theater is excited to announce the debut of a collaborative, virtual filmmaking program for children ages 11-16, Videos for Change, developed by internationally-acclaimed nonprofit High Resolves.* The program will run from July 13-24. Each student will learn how to research and craft a key message and storyboard — then create, edit and promote a one-minute film about a social justice issue that they care about.
Students will work both independently (online via OpenLearning, an innovative, global education platform) and virtually with a teacher (via Zoom). No prior filmmaking experience is required; participants are welcome to use any technology they have on hand — from a smartphone to a digital camera. The July 13-24 session will comprise approximately 15 hours a week followed by a virtual festival and celebration of the students’ films presented by the Irvington Theater.
Space is limited, so please register as soon as possible. Tuition is $100 for the two-week program. (Financial assistance is available.)
