Lights, camera, action! In this Writers in the Schools (WITS) workshop, participants will work in small groups to design, write, and film short silent movies. Through a process of identifying elements of a story, creating a story board, and planning their scenes to be filmed, teens discover best practices for collaborating on a creative team. With a professional writer as their mentor, students will gain experience in directing, acting, and taking on various production roles. They will be inspired along the way with a visit from a local filmmaker. At the end of the week, teens will invite their family and friends to join in a showing of their short silent films. *Participants will be required to bring their own lap top, tablet or cell phone.
