YOUTH IN MOTION: A WORKSHOP FOR EMERGING FILMMAKERS
VAALA presents Youth In Motion: A Workshop for Emerging Filmmakers. As part of VAALA's on-going smART series, this program is being offered for the first time by VAALA to support young voices, stories, and perspectives in the Vietnamese community through the art of digital films. Workshop participants explore and learn basic skills and tools for digital filmmaking and work collaboratively to produce short films that will premiere at the 2014 Viet Film Fest in April.
Participants have the opportunity to learn about the production process - from storytelling to camera work to editing - and put their skills to practice. Some sessions include guest speakers from the local film community. The workshop is free and no previous experience in film is needed to participate! SCHEDULE (topics subject to change) When: Sundays from 1:00-4:00pm Where: VAALA Cultural Center at 1600 N. Broadway, Suite 210, Santa Ana, CA 92796
