The Ellensburg Film Festival (EFF), in partnership with the Ellensburg Public Library Summer Reading Program, has put together a five hour course to teach teens about filmmaking. The product of a collaboration between librarian Josephine Caramillo and EFF board member Ralla Vickers, the class will be facilitated by festival interns from the CWU film and video studies program. Nearly 30 students are expected.
Participating teens will work in small groups to create short films. Working collaboratively, teams will script, record and edit their movies. The final products will be screened for the class. The hope is to also include the students’ work in the schedule at the 8th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival, October 5-7. 2012.
The workshop will be held at the Hal Holmes Center on Tuesday July 31, Wednesday August 1, and Thursday August 2 from 3-4:30 PM.
