Urban Exposure Short Film Program + Killer of Sheep

Figge Art Museum

Saturday, Aug 26


Urban Exposure Summer Film Program is a ten-week summer program for young people highlighting the fundamentals of filmmaking including writing, directing, and editing. Under the supervision of experienced filmmakers, high school, and college-aged students work with one another to realize their creative visions and produce their own films from start to finish. By the end of the program, each participant writes, films, edits, and presents their films to the community at a premiere event held at the Figge Art Museum. 
Studies show that participation in programs like Urban Exposure benefits the social, behavioral, and cognitive development of youth. Yet, these programs are often the first to go when schools are financially strained. Because of that, there is a great need for underserved young people in our community to have a positive and proactive outlet for self-expression. Azubuike and its Urban Exposure film program provide youth the opportunity to do just that in a healthy and culturally rich environment.

Urban Exposure is also offering two components:
Acting for Film Workshop
This 2 week (twice a week) acting component allows students to participate in a short training workshop that requires full involvement in learning the craft of film acting.

Set Production Crew/Assistant Workshop 
This 2 week (twice a week) set production crew/assistant component is a boot camp-style workshop. The Set Production Crew/Assistant Boot Camp takes students through the entire process in just four days. Students will learn how to work on a film set, production terminology & paperwork, essential film crew titles and job descriptions, set protocol, how a typical day progresses, locking up the set, how to help set the background, and walkie sign out.
