Why should kids have all the fun?

This summer, Montclair Film has something special just for adults. Fun mini camps and workshops that include:

Screenwriting I
Students will learn the fundamentals of screenwriting from format to techniques to story structure. Students will analyze the work of successfully produced screenplays to learn what it takes to write for film and television, as well as receive valuable feedback from their peers and their instructor as they create their own original short, feature, or television scripts! No previous screenwriting experience is required. (Class Size: 7 – 10)

A Taste of Improv
Two class sessions to introduce you to the fun of improvisation through exercises, games, and scenes. If you’re interested in improv – and you’ve seen it on TV or live – and want to have some fun letting those crazy ideas out of your head, then this mini-camp will give you a summer blast of creativity.

Dates: 8/8, 8/9
Time: 7:00pm – 9:30pm

The Art of Storytelling

Everyone has a unique story to tell, but not everyone has the training or the confidence to feel comfortable telling it. Do you get nervous running a meeting at work? Do you wish you had more confidence speaking at events? Do you want to ensure your message is well received on the radio, a podcast, or at your next fundraiser? Then the Art of Storytelling is the perfect mini-camp for you! Whether you want to work on confidence and poise in large groups or work on preparing your next professional storytelling performance with the Montclair Film Story Slams, this class will give you the tools you need to deliver high quality stories, performances, and content in whatever spaces you choose!
