FROM CONCEPT TO STORY TO SCREEN
SHORT FILM DEVELOPMENT FOR TEENS
Participants will work in small groups to create a short film concept with limited resources and time. Starting with the same simple scenario and a current social issue, each group will develop, produce and perform a short story of their own making in order to see how similar storylines can be developed in a variety of ways—and how their own background, edu- cation, preferences, and experiences influence story development.
