Film Making

Why filmmaking?

That’s because, whether you are aspiring to be an inventor, a scientist, an entrepreneur, an astronaut, a physician – or a film director, learning to communicate effectively is
invaluable. And storytelling through films is a highly effective way to communicate. In this hands-on
introductory class, kids learn basics of the film making and make a short video about - themselves!

Brought to you in collaboration with SK Storytellers.
