Master Shot Film Club (ages 12–18) [VIRTUAL; RSVP REQUIRED]

April 3 @ 17 h 00 min - 18 h 30 min

For ages 12–18


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 meet in a relaxed and creative setting where you can share your ideas, get feedback and work on your technique, while learning about how 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! This group will meet virtually in April.

You’re welcome to bring in questions and projects you need help on during any meeting. You may also email Clarence with your film-making questions: c1tokley@yahoo.com
