Reel Youth offers hands-on and educational film programs for BIPOC youth from underserved neighborhoods in Central and Southeast Seattle. The film programs encourage, mentor, and teach students the fundamentals of storytelling through the medium of film. Courses offer one on one instruction, engaging group sessions, and hands-on training. Students learn to storyboard, write, produce, direct and act in their very own short films!
The courses are taught by Black and Brown artist-instructors and will focus on social justice, our rich local history, documentary filmmaking, and subjects that resonate with our students. Reel Youth‘s mission is to create opportunities for children of color to access the professional Film & TV industry – and to give them the tools they need to express themselves through the magic of Filmmaking.
Students will learn from industry professionals to utilize the etiquette & vocabulary used in major studio and network productions. They will sharpen their skills in creating clarity and purpose while communicating their stories through Filmmaking; and will learn to love the stories they have to tell.
We are offering 2 camps for ages 8-12: Sundays – September 4th, 11th & 18th and September 25th, October 2nd & 9th, and 2 camps for ages 13-18: Saturdays – September 10th, 7th & 24th, and October 1st, 8th & 15th. All camps are held from 10 am to 3 pm.
Each student will receive a $150 stipend upon completion of the entire course!
Thanks to The YMCA of Greater Seattle – A nutritious breakfast will be offered each morning as students are dropped off, and a healthy lunch is provided along with snacks throughout the day.
