Making a film isn’t as hard as you think! Many people assume that filmmaking requires fancy equipment and expensive software, but for this class all you need is a phone with a camera and a computer (preferred), iPad, or iPhone that can run iMovie (a free editing software). No experience necessary.
During this class, you will create a short film of 2-5 minutes. Starting at the very basics of what makes a good story, we will work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. At the end, if time allows, there will also be a wrap party where you show off all your hard work! After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will come away with the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.
Ayla is a teen that has always enjoyed watching movies, but she really fell in love with filmmaking during a week-long internship in 8th grade. Since then, she has taken five other film classes through school, the New York Film Academy, and the School of Creative and Performing Arts (SOCAPA), and produced over ten short films and documentaries.
Teens, come on down to BARN for an evening of games, friends, music, and creativity! You'll get to choose from activities like cooking, woodworking, sewing, jewelry-making, metal-working, and more - every month is a different lineup. You can also just hang out and chill or work on your own projects. Bring a friend or come on your own and meet new friends!
This month our event is winter themed, with projects you can make to give as gifts this holiday season! It will be based indoors, so all participants will be required to be vaccinated per our current covid safety protocols. All will be required to wear masks throughout the evening, except while eating at a distance from others... did we mention free pizza is provided?!! You bet it is.
No registration is required, but teens will be asked to sign in and out and provide a parent phone number and email address upon arrival.
Activities this month will include cookie decorating, wood carving, welding, needle felting, laser cut ornaments, stamped copper rings, and more! We'll also have a holiday movie going (with popcorn, of course.)
Read on for descriptions of the various workshops:
Stamped Rings: Make a customized stamped copper or brass adjustable ring. Learn how to file and sand metal and use symbol or letter metal stamps to make your ring unique.
Needle felting: Use colorful wool and a special needle to create a felted snowman or tree ornament, or another creation you dream up!
Poetry & Art for LGBTQ+ and Allies: Open to all, gay or straight, this safe space lets you play with words and visuals to express your identity. Create hand-bound mini poetry chapbooks to gift your loved ones for the holidays.
Laser Cut Ornaments: Learn how to use one of BARN's laser cutters in our Electronic & Technical Arts studio to create a wood ornament to take home.
Welding: Learn to use BARN's plasma cutter and other tools in our Welding Shop to make an artistic, one-of-a-kind gift out of steel.
