Here’s a look at some of our other programming, in various stages of development.
My Life in Pictures
A year long high school filmmaking program that begins with a personal exploration of their past, present, and future and culminates in a short film based on one of their “stories.” The second half of the program introduces the students to the world of filmmaking and filmmakers. They will explore different styles and genres in order to define their own cinematic style. They will also be paired with an established editor and mentor who will help guide and support them in the process. They will learn how to write, shoot, end edit. Students will leave the program with a short film based on their life that reflects who they are, where they have been, and where they want to go.
The Hillsides Education Center Writer’s Workshop
Students at the Hillsides Education Center for Fostered and Emotionally Disturbed Youth are continuing to work with YSF after the completion of the Script-to-Stage Program in a workshop exploration of different forms of creative writing. At the culmination of sessions, student will read a selection of their work at a public reading at a nearby bookstore, and leave the program with a bound book collection of their work.
