CADETTE BADGE WORKSHOPS

DIGITAL MOVIE MAKER
Cadettes will learn about filmmaking as well as MAKE their own micro-short film during this workshop! Prior to the workshop, the troop will select a script from the provided options (or use the one your troop wrote in the screenwriter workshop!) At the workshop, Cadettes will learn about the pre-production, production and post-production process of making a digital short film and will act and crew the shoot using professional equipment. The completed film will be edited and a digital copy provided to the troop.  (In some cases, the editing will be completed by Verve staff after the workshop is completed.)
Participants will receive a guide to filmmaking handout, a digital copy of the film and a fun patch.
This is a 4-hour workshop. $40 each participant*

SCREENWRITER
A good screenplay has great dialogue and visual descriptions and tells a complete story! Cadettes will learn the fundamentals of screenwriting as well as start on drafting their own micro-short screenplay during this workshop! Participants will receive a guide to screenwriting handout and a fun patch.
This is a 3-hour workshop. $20 each participant *
