The young artists are introduced to the basics of reading films and film techniques. Classes are filled with heavy discussion regarding the power behind film especially in this modern age of digital media. During this course, we analyzed  the works of several filmmakers and artists such as Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee, Kanye West, Fernando Meirelles, and many more.

Teens end the course with a stronger understanding of films, filmmaking, as well as two powerful films, shot and edited by them.
