Aspiring filmmakers, writers and actors are invited to join the Master Shot Film Club at the Library. Led by Paris-based filmmaker and writer Clarence Tokley, the purpose of this club is to allow budding filmmakers the opportunity to produce high quality short films.
The Master Shot Film Club provides a space for teens to explore all aspects of film-making, including the development and production process, script-writing, camera work, directing, editing and much more, not to mention that you’ll get to know other young filmmakers in the community! If you are interested in joining the Master Shot Film Club, fill in the application form by 30 September at 22h00. You can expect to write a short paragraph about yourself and why you would like to join the club. This club is open to teens ages 12–18 in the Paris area who are fluent in English. If accepted, participation in this program is free. You do not need to be a Library member to apply.
This club will meet one Saturday afternoon a month from September 2019 through June 2020 from 17h00-18h30 at the American Library in Paris. Members of the club are expected to commit to attending meetings regularly.
