LANGSTON Filmmaking Workshops for Black Youth: Crash Kids

Join us for this FREE three-Saturday filmmaking workshop specificially for black youth (ages 9-12) at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute.

February 29 - March 14, 2020

LANGSTON is proud to present a FREE three-Saturday immersive filmmaking workshop for black youth (ages 9-12), powered by SIFF. Youth will practice the art of storytelling and learn to bring their ideas to life, creating short films around culturally appropriate themes based on historical figures of the central district and specific social justice issues from the community.

Experienced teaching artists will guide student production teams from script to screen over the three sessions, each building on the previous workshop, engaging all experience levels in camera and editing software to enhance the storytelling process. Students will practice and become comfortable with all elements of filmmaking, including: scriptwriting, acting, filming, editing, and costume/production design.

These workshops are free and require a commitment to attend all three workshops. Students who attend all three workshops will receive a $100 stipend for participation.
