Make-A-Movie Workshops

Acting for Kids & Teens Make a Movie Workshop
Acting for Kids & Teens Make a Movie Workshop

Make-A-Movie is our most popular Workshop series, held 3-4 times a year, where students make and star in a real movie!

Coach Katie invites industry professionals to team with her kids as they write, direct, shoot, edit, and act in a short film. Many local professionals step forward to make this exciting opportunity happen for this next generation of artists.

The workshop begins with a brainstorming session where students work with a professional screenwriter to develop the story line. A few weeks later, students meet for 2-3 days of film study, training, and coaching followed by 1-2 days of on-set shooting.

Once the shoot is complete, the film is edited, produced and screened in a movie theater with family, friends and industry insiders. After the screening, the actors stand up and talk about their take-aways from this Make-A-Movie experience. They are also given first opportunity to sign up for the next Make-A-Movie workshop because they’re that popular! The film is available for download on Vimeo.

Students must be willing to be filmed and promoted online. Many students use Make-A-Movie films to create their own demo reels so it is important that parents understand and sign a Photo Video Release for their child to be filmed.

To participate in Make-A-Movie, be sure to join our mailing list! This workshop always fills up fast.
