Join us starting this October to learn skills that will set you up for success!
Through this program, you will become a better writer, storyteller, communicator, and expand your film and editing skills. You’ll collaborate with fellow young filmmakers across the country as you build your documentary and narrative film production skills and add 5-8 pieces of content to your portfolio! No film experience or special equipment required.
You’ll work on projects like a music video, a documentary short/PSA, cutting your own film trailer and a mini-movie.
These projects will prepare you for future job & education opportunities in media (and as a bonus, we bet the skills you learn will help you make better social media posts too!) Careers you’ll learn more about: videographer, editor, producer, screenwriter, digital storyteller, Youtuber, and many more!
What’s the commitment?
You’ll meet with the pros from Fresh Films and your fellow filmmakers once each week on Thursdays from 4-6:30pm to learn new skills and create short film projects.
Possibility to work on a real film set. Yep, there will be a live film set in Rock Island producing a full-length feature film Ghostland, written by Emmy-award winner Rick Cleveland. You will be able to apply to join us there for a week to put your skills to the test in every role on set, from camera, lights & audio to assistant directing & producing and leave the week with a true sense of how a film crew functions and all of the jobs on set. (This is usually everyone’s absolute favorite part — it’s a BLAST!)
