Waycross Community Media Summer Workshops

Posted on: February 23, 2017

Waycross Community Media will once again be holding Summer Workshops for youth in grades 6-8 and grades 9-12. Led by Cincinnati filmmaker Bob Leibold, these three week, ten session summer workshops will introduce students to the process of film making. The students will create a short film (between 5-10 minutes), complete with credits and soundtrack, while learning the fundamentals of how films are created.

This is a hands-on workshop. The process will begin in the concept stage where the students will create rounded characters, determine a plot and follow a storyline. Based on these parameters, the students will write a script with the help of our workshop leaders. Once the script has been approved, the students will serve as cast and crew. The workshop will conclude with a premier party for friends and family, with each student receiving a DVD copy of the completed project.

This is an opportunity for kids to learn several new skills in a fun environment and to have a tangible result to show teachers, college admissions officers, and family.

Dates: The workshops will be held on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from June 13 - June 30. For students in Grades 6 - 8, the workshops will be held from 10 AM to 1 PM. For students in Grades 9 - 12, the workshops will be held from 2 PM to 5 PM. A premiere party for attendees and their families in both groups will be held on Friday, July 7 at 6 PM.
