VIRTUAL EVENT: ($) Virtual Filmmaking for Ages 13-17 from Mopco Improv Theater

*The event has already taken place on this date: Thu, 08/06/2020
Have fun, access your creativity, and try something new and different. In addition to onstage improv, Mopco has experimented for years with improvised films. This year's COVID lockdown has been a terrible thing. But it has also produced an explosion of creativity. Anyone can learn filmmaking, about story creation and communication, and create a unique product with what they have on hand--their phone, computer or tablet. while having fun with other creative people.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

In this experience we'll decide on a genre, sketch out a story line, and get right into shooting the film. Class members will learn hands on about all the parts of "real" film production in an accessible and playful process that is based on the principles of improvisation: be spontaneous, make your partner look good, and develop your ability to be a good listener and communicator.

Whether you've always secretly fancied yourself a Spike Lee, Quentin Tarantino, or Kathryn Bigelow, or never heard of any of them and just want to have some fun and make great stuff for TikTok , this experience is for you.

Disclaimer: The final product WON'T look like something by a Hollywood studio. But it'll be fun to watch!

Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays for 3 weeks, July 21- August 6, from 10:30am - 1:30pm on Zoom
