MOVIE ARTS© FALL 2017 AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

10-SESSION Movie Arts©Programs includes expert instruction, access to and guided use of professional moviemaking equipment and props, daily healthy snacks, and an opportunity to practice the technical skills and creative process of making a screen-ready movie.

AUTOMATIC STUDIOS Movie Arts©
curriculum is a series of afterschool classes that guide children (grades 3rd-8th) through a complete moviemaking experience, wrapped up with a special screening of the students’ finished film, for friends and family members at The Made in NY Media Center.

Each series is designed to accommodate a maximum of 12 students and will always have a minimum of 2 instructors guiding every 2-hour session. Our team of experienced instructors will guide every student through all the steps of collaborative moviemaking. Each class will work as a creative production team to make a short (5-10 minute) movie. Each Movie Arts© Program guides young moviemakers through a sequence of activities that are the foundation of professional moviemaking.

All
Movie Arts© Programs are conducted in fully outfitted production studios and technically equipped classrooms.
We welcome all Automatic Studios Alumni to our Master Class Program. Please let us know also what technical focus your child is most interested in—Camera Dept., A.D., Costume, Sound, Hair & Makeup. Of course, everyone will get a chance to rotate jobs but we have noticed that each child, of course, gravitates to specific roles. We want to give each kid the opportunity to grow and improve their skills in this more in-depth program. We are looking to build a strong and complete crew! Requirement: must be an alumni of 1-week Automatic Studios program.
