Saturday, October 25, 2014

An offshoot of KC FilmFest’s annual Reel Spirit youth film competition, this all-day family event screens award-winning shorts and a free family feature and offers interactive filmmaking workshops on important storytelling principles.

Making a special appearance is Hallmark Cards artist and head of character development Pedro Martin, who works with the animated hoops&yoyo characters and created Asteroid Andy. He discusses and shows clips of his work, including the conception of new Hallmark character Penny Paperheart, and introduces the animated movie hoops&yoyo’s Haunted Halloween.

This workshop will focus on many aspects of theater including improv, movement, C.R.O.W. (Character Relationship Objective Where), story telling, literature, basic theater terms, team building, voice, imagination and most important, having fun!

This workshop will not be performance focused. There is no “final performance” at the end of the four week session, so if you can’t make every session don’t worry! Youth can earn DIY badges after the workshop.
