This December we ( Adam & Willow) at Future Filmmaker Workshops, want to hold our first international non-profit film workshop in Nairobi, Kenya. The goal of these international courses will be to provide us an opportunity to experience children’s stories from all over the world.

In collaboration with Wanjiru Kinyanjui a film professor at Kenyatta University, and The Hot Sun Foundation (www.hotsunfoundation.org) a non-profit that works in Nairobi, Kenya with young people in the urban slums of Africa to help train and expose their talents and potential on the world stage, we will select 8 students from mixed socio-economic backgrounds to participate in this course. During the 10 day workshop the students will collaborate to write, direct, film, act in, and edit an all original movie.

The money raised will go towards providing the 4 teachers and 8 students, room and board, 3 meals a day, private transportation, house staff, two interns from the local college, other local help needed, and DVD materials for the finished film. The completed film will then be shown locally for all friends, family and community to share.

Two other filmmakers will be joining, shooter and editor Jake Wehrman, and producer Josephine Kingman, who will capture behind the scenes footage of the students experience throughout the program and beyond. Jake and Josephine will be filming a documentary that will include candid interviews with the students and their parents, as well as the essence and everyday life for these students in Kenya. The documentary will accompany the finished film created by the students or, as a stand alone piece.

Thank you so much for your support!
