Junior Video Production Program
For students 12 -17 years old
Motion picture cameras have become so easy to acquire and to operate that filmmakers as young as 12-17 years old can start developing their storytelling skills for the big screen. MDAFI offers a program specifically designed to train junior storytellers in the basic principles and techniques of cinema.
Moreover, the program provides an atmosphere conducive to developing the social skills of creative expression and collaboration. Students are encouraged to be resourceful team workers involving not only their classmates, but also and especially their families and friends, in the production of their short films.
Good cinema is good education. Learn how to film good stories and preserve them for life!
