Ever think about making a movie or documentary?  Wonder what it’d be like to run a camera, act or direct, write a script? Or maybe you’re doing some of that already and now you’re looking for the next step.

The Digital Filmmaking Workshop offers area teens a chance to work with professional and student mentors over 4 sessions to create short cinematic or documentary films, ideal entries for the 2015 Maine Student Film and Video Festival. You’ll work in small teams to write, shoot, and edit your concept, and you’ll get a chance to work with professional gear and software provided by the Maine Film Center and Mid-Maine Technical Center. We’ll get you going by providing a theme, a few pointers on getting started, access to equipment and lots of support along the way. No previous experience or equipment is needed.
