I didn’t think I was capable of working in film.  But after participating in the Fresh Films program, I know I can.” – Angelica Ramon, 17 years old

This is your chance! Show your talent. Create film projects and dive into the entertainment industry. What are you waiting for?

The Projects:

Hands on is how you build pre-production (planning the film), technical knowledge (lights, camera, audio), and editing skills. When all is said and done you’ll have a portfolio of 5 short films! Want to know more?!

  • Shoot a movie scene for Paramount +
  • Produce a Music Video for a real band
  • Produce a competition show with Fremantle – think American Idol or Cupcake Wars!  
  • Create a Documentary with Roku
  • Develop a scripted short film with Sony Pictures

The Commitment:
