    About this class

    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 phone that can run iMovie (a free editing software). No experience necessary.

    During this class, you create a short film of two to five minutes. Starting with the very basics of what makes a good story, we work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. At the end, you can show off all your hard work at the wrap party!

    After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will have the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.

    Details:

    • For students ages 12-14. 
    • Registration closes Jan. 6.
    • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to this email.
    • Please complete and return this minor permission form.

    Supplies Needed

    • A phone, iPad, or computer that can run iMovie.

    Chances are, you have a smartphone with cameras good enough to shoot a feature film built right into them. But, what if you wanted to get even more out of your own smartphone?

    In this one-day intensive introductory course, you will learn how to make the most of your mobile phone’s video capabilities.

    Through hands-on practice exercises and instructor demonstrations you will learn about a broad range of accessories, apps and techniques that you can use to make your video pop off whatever screen it’s destined for.

    Whether you want to make a feature film, a YouTube tutorial, or an amazing looking vacation video that your friends will envy, this course will help you get up and running.


    Supplies Needed:

    • You must have a smartphone with a camera and be willing and able to download and install apps on your phone. Either iPhone and Android phones will work. 


    Details:

    • Feel free to bring a lunch. BARN has a refrigerator and microwave in the kitchen on the lower level.
    • Please click here for BARN's current COVID-19 health & safety protocols.

    Instructor:

    Courtney G. Jones is a 30 year veteran of the film & television industry who has been an advocate for the kind of accessibility mobile filmmaking brings to creators for several years. Not only does Courtney serve as Head of Development for Steve Zahn & Rick Gomez’s company, Macaroni Art Productions, but he has produced and directed feature films, commercials, documentaries, and series… some of which have been shot on mobile. Mr. Jones brings a wealth of technical and creative know-how to the classroom.

    Courtney’s main goal with teaching mobile content creation is to show that anyone can make something amazing with the technology that is in their pocket.

    When Courtney is not writing, producing, filming, editing or teaching, he’s typically daydreaming about flying, living on a boat, or trying out new recipes in the kitchen.
