Filmmaking for Youths

(For Youths Aged 13 to 17)



A picture may speak a thousand words, but moving pictures are worth millions.

With the constant advancement of technology, film/video making is becoming more affordable for non-professionals. However, we cannot ignore the impact of social media on the way we perceive things. Since the introduction of the Internet, we have gotten used to retrieving information through words and images. People are finding better ways to communicate using video as a medium. More than 2 billions videos are being streamed every year.

Young people are game-changers; they have so much to tell, but can they express themselves effectively? How can their voices be heard?

This workshop is fun and interactive, and participants will learn how to tell compelling stories that their parents will be proud of. This workshop will introduce to participants the mindset of an independent filmmaker, how to develop an idea into a vision, and turn it into a product.
