2019 Filmmaking Camps

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.

Kindness Day 2019

As part of the 2019 Pioneer Elementary School Kindness Day, people visited Studio 300 to record messages of kindness and gratitude and a few also sent in videos to share. May 18 was declared “Pioneer Elementary School Kindness Day” by Bolingbrook Mayor Roger C. Claar in honor of the school community’s overwhelming kindness towards a young girl who faced “tremendous health challenges.” Her family now wants to share their gratitude for the kindness she received and express how simple acts of kindness were critical to their daughter’s recovery.
