|Denzale Butler at April 22's "Introduction to Cinema" workshop|
Hey young people, ever dreamed of becoming a filmmaker? Then make plans to be at the West End Branch Library on Saturday, April 29, at 3:30 p.m., for week two of its free filmmaking workshops for teens.
The workshop, Do You Want to Make a Movie? Filmmaking for Teens, kicked off last Saturday, April 22, 2017. The teacher is Birmingham filmmaker Denzale Butler. There is only room for 10 students, so register in advance online or by calling the West End Library at 205-226-4089.
The remaining three classes, all taught between 3:30 and 4:45 p.m, are as follows:
Week Two (April 29) is "ABC’s of Film (Shot Sizes)"
Week Three (May 6) is "ABC’s of Film (Camera Movement)"
Week Four (May 13) is "ABC’s of Film (Composition)"
The teacher will bring a camera to class. However, students are asked to bring their camera phones since they will use them to create shots that create various moods. Teens will acquire a new skill and additional knowledge about an exciting topic. The class will fulfill the components of lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and enjoyment by introducing teens to filmmaking, according to the West End Library.
