Help support professionals and high school students team up on a collaborative short film and film apprenticeship in Newton, MA! Read more
This project was successfully funded on April 26, 2010.
About this project
In April 2010, Workbench Productions offers a Film Apprenticeship for high school students at Newton North and Newton South to gain invaluable filmmaking experience during the shoot of Adam Underground.
This no-cost Apprenticeship is already enabling 46 Newton High school students to work closely both through observation and hands-on work in the creation of a professional 23 min short film.
Paired with a member of the crew, the students will be using their creative, technical, and practical knowledge to gain varied experience from designing sets to learning about complex lighting set-ups and sound recording, and even acting in featured roles alongside professional SAG actors.
The mission of the Apprenticeship is to provide students with the inside knowledge and inspiration to generate their own large-scale creative projects.
We are relying on community and individual donations to make this project a reality. We are looking to raise the last $2,000-5,000 of our $40,000 budget.
The donations will go towards paying our crew members (experienced in both filmmaking and film education) a fair price for their work.
We’re very excited to use the Kickstarter medium to offer our services in return for your support!
Please check out our website for more information and updates during each day of the shoot (April 17-24) www.wewilldoyourhomework.com
Hope you decide to help! Thank you!
