Once again this Summer our Tween and Teen patrons learned about filmmaking during hands-on programs in Studio 300. The Tween group focused on making a short film trailer based upon popular games. They also designed a poster to go along with their imaginative film. The Teens also made trailers. For a second project, they conceived and produced a short film and made posters, too. Enjoy these videos made by our young Fountaindale community members.
Students and their teacher from the Independence Elementary after school Indy Filmmakers share their work in this inspiring documentary. The “indie Indy” group uses Studio 300 equipment and computers to videotape and edit their short films. They even used our maker lab for their custom t-shirts.
Special thanks to the students and their teacher for kind permission to share this video.
At this year’s program, our Fountaindale Public Library patrons experimented with two different animation styles: cutout stop-motion and computer-based animation. Here are their completed animations made during the November 2018 Animation Bootcamp program in Studio 300.
Studio 300 kicked off this year’s Summer Camps for our Tween and Teen patrons with a Songwriting Workshop. The young patrons gathered for a creative collaboration in Studio 300. Together they selected a background music track, composed their melody, wrote their own lyrics, rehearsed the song, and then performed the track in one of our soundproof audio booths. Enjoy the results of their hard work:
Here are the projects made by our Tween and Teen patrons during Fountaindale Public Library and Studio 300’s Summer 2017 Filmmaking Camp. The youths came up with these ideas, wrote scripts, drew storyboards, selected props and sets, videotaped themselves, and the edited the final projects — including making posters. Enjoy!
