Reel Active is a variety of community strengthening activities hosted by Reel Grrls and community partners, and volunteers. Reel Grrls’ mission is to support young people to explore, critique and author media through a feminist lens. Reel Grrls believes in the Future is Feminist, and is committed to incubate community spaces that build empathy, advocacy and amplification.
Reel Active: Seattle Snap Make a Trailer is a weekend intensive geared towards connecting young aspiring media makers with local adult professionals. You will get the opportunity to focus on the process of what it takes to transform your ideas and develop them into a webisode. You will form crews that will then take your ideas to make a trailer. This is a pilot program, and we want to create a year long opportunity for young people to have a creative community to be part of. The goal is if you like your team and want to continue to expand your webisode / trailer you can join us to be part of the steering committee to make that happen.
You can sign-up as a group to form your own crew, or sign-up as an individual and we will place you into a crew. We welcome everyone with all experience levels. The agenda for the weekend is that everyone will be learning together the basics of film making, and also have an opportunity to learn skills that are specific to your interests whether it is in pre-production (story boarding), production (shooting, directing, acting, sound), or post production (editing, special effects).
- Day 1: The focus on pre-production and production. Students will work together, and have the opportunity to split into an interest specific workshop
- Day 2: The focus for the day is production, post-production, and screening!
What to bring:
Bring your ideas, if you have a camera & gear that you want to use, and lunch if you have dietary restrictions.
Seattle Snap is possible thanks to community partners like Seattle International Film Festival, Hand Crank Films, and community volunteers.
