Lessons For Filmmaking Teens
With the advent of Facebook, MySpace and YouTube, the so-called millennial generation is more adept than ever at sharing the details of their daily lives online.
But there may now be demand to do so in a more artistic way. Manhattan Edit Workshop, a small New York film school, has started a $2,000 class called “From You to YouTube: Filmmaking, Evolved.” In two two-week sessions, Mac-friendly 12- to 18-year-olds will learn the basics of shooting and editing. The goal is to learn how to compress the final product down to a Web-friendly size, according to Josh Apter, the school’s owner.
