Students Plan, Direct, Produce, Record, & Act In Their Own Short Film Or Video Segment

Students learn how to produce, act, and star on camera while building self-confidence and a sense of team achievement putting together their own short film or video segments. Storytelling and having fun as creators is fundamental in our production classes. We teach filmmaking – in a fun, accessible way – as students work together on screen and behind-the-scenes.  

Our sessions are specially designed to give students the opportunity to learn how movie making works. We start by collaboratively planning with small steps before moving on to progressively more challenging choices. Week-by-week we dive into production and learn basic production concepts including acting on camera, lights, sound, visual storytelling, audition, acting, and production as students work together to rotate through crew assignments and make their production. 

Our classes are customized for each student, emphasizing fun for our young students as they practice both on camera and behind the scenes and more in-depth lessons for older or more experienced kids. Each student also receives a link to their full class video as well as public recognition on our website and social media. Sessions wrap up with an optional neighborhood screening of their their pre-recorded segment to share with family, friends, and community at our Downtown Studio at 165 Newark Ave in Jersey City. Our 1,500 square foot studio includes "4K" digital video cameras, wireless microphones, multi-aspect lighting equipment, and additional production gear.
