About this class

Making a film isn’t as hard as you think! Many people assume that filmmaking requires fancy equipment and expensive software, but for this class, all you need is a phone with a camera and a computer (preferred), iPad, or phone that can run iMovie (a free editing software). No experience necessary.

During this class, you create a short film of two to five minutes. Starting with the very basics of what makes a good story, we work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. At the end, you can show off all your hard work at the wrap party!

After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will have the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.


  • For students ages 12-14. 
  • Registration closes Jan. 6.
  • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to this email.

Supplies Needed

  • A phone, iPad, or computer that can run iMovie.
