Climb into the director’s seat and get ready for a fun-filled summer program that will explore the art of the written and spoken word through the theme of creative movie-making. In this session, students will focus on the genres of narrative and persuasive writing as they create their own script and screenplay. They will learn to express themselves creatively while gaining an understanding of character and plot development, proper selection of a musical score, sound effects, and may even learn to write their own song. While collaborating to create a movie trailer, students will tackle multiple aspects of writing, public speaking, and acting. For inspiration, students will have special guest visits from professional voice-over artists and industry insiders, who will share their experiences in Hollywood and the importance of writing.
