Youth ages 10 – 18 will work together to create a screenplay for a thirty-minute episode for a You-Tube series that highlight situations in life that could lead to neglect, abuse, poverty, or homelessness. Each thirty-minute episode will also need two commercials (30 seconds and 3 minutes). The workshop participants will find these story lines through online research and group discussions. The youth will then act out the scenes and participate in the editing process of the episode.
Youth will practice reading, writing, communication, group collaboration efforts, and will develop their public speaking skills through acting.
Various animals will appear in the commercials, however, Henry or Jack (two Great Danes) will represent The Other Side of the Fence for every commercial.
The youth will decide if they want their storyline to be black and white, silent slapstick comedy, melodramatic, horror, modern comedy, western, or any other creative format. The roles needed for each episode will almost always include the parent/s or other caregiver/s and children for the storyline. All adult roles will be acted out by the youth.
This 6 Week Program meets Saturdays 10 AM – 4 PM (includes lunch).
