Action! Filmmaking class is now in session!

fc-academy-final-2017FC Academy provides filmmaking classes — after school, during the summer and throughout school vacation weeks for middle school students who want to flex their creative muscles and learn the art of filmmaking.

Curious about FC Academy? Watch this animation created by the animation students at the Lesley University College of Art and Design.

Students will learn skills in scriptwriting, storyboard sketching, character development, improvisation, and camera skills – all in a fun, collaborative and exciting environment. Together, the group will write, shoot, and edit a film in a genre of their choosing. Students will also learn to edit their films using professional edit software like Adobe Premiere Pro.

All final projects are eligible for submission into the Boston International Kids Film Festival and viewed on the big screen in front of family and friends!
