Summary: This program is completely free to youth aged 12-18, and includes free meals on set, and a free costume for filming. Youth will be challenged with learning choreography, theatrics and working cohesively with all other cast and crew. On set students take direction and constructive criticisms, while also receiving honor and praise. They will be exposed to professional film-making and professional choreography disciplines and approaches, to the discipline of hurry up and wait that is part of the film industry, and practicing flexibility and openness in an environment of collaboration and frequently-changing direction. The program will consist of 14 hours of rehearsals and filming activities for the youth performers, which will be integrated into the full-length feature film.
