STARS & STORYTELLERS is Lights Academy's 8-week Intro to Film and Acting course. Students choose an area of focus, Acting (Stars) or Filmmaking (Storytellers), and from there explore the foundational elements of their chosen track:
STARS: Students will be introduced to the building blocks of the acting process through hands-on lessons, interactive games, and improv exercises as they learn about objectives, obstacles, actions, character development, and more.
STORYTELLERS: Students will learn the basics of screenwriting, cinematography, lighting, sound and editing, as they put their original ideas into action and collaborate to create an ensemble short film.
During the process, the two groups will come together to create various short films showcasing their gifts and skills. At the end of the course, students enjoy a live screening of the short films they've created for friends and family members, complete with a Red Carpet Experience!
Classes are held every Saturday from from 10:30a-12p from 10/15/16-12/10/16 (excluding 11/26/16 for the Thanksgiving holiday).
