Sunday Afternoons for Kids: Film Festival in 90 Minutes

Sunday Sep 13, 2009 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 10–14

Salvador Dali and Orson Welles spent time creating diorama worlds, inventing stories, and performing them using miniature sets and tiny characters. Workshop attendees will use the same techniques to put together a short film festival in about an hour and a half, using methods developed by Brick Maier while on a Fulbright grant in Dublin. Maier refined the Tabletop Moviemaking process in Turin, and helped teenagers across Europe make thirty movies in three days at the MTV-sponsored Stranger Festival in Amsterdam. For more information on Tabletop Moviemaking, please visit www.tabletopmedia.org.
