Participants (ages 9-18) in the Short Movie Workshop will learn to use their own camcorders or cell phones to create short silent pictures with the fantasy world of Valley of the Moon as their set location. (An extra camera will be available for those who don't have your own.) We'll enjoy the beautiful spring weather while being inspired by whimsical castles and elf villages. We'll have a blast playing theater games while learning techniques for acting for the camera, script writing, storyboarding, and simple rules of video production. In the process we'll develop creativity, communication skills, confidence and concentration.

When: Saturday, May 5th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Valley of the Moon
Address: 2544 E. Allen Rd. (Tucson Blvd and Allen Rd.)
