At CinemaKidz, imaginations take flight! We focus on play and practice as a means to explore film and animation. Participants have the opportunity to really test and try the fundamentals of moviemaking, learning in a child-driven atmosphere that promotes risk taking and creativity.
Children interact with technology in an inquiry-based manner. Children are encouraged to troubleshoot, ask questions, take risks, and make mistakes. Kids build vital soft skills, as they collaborate, plan, and refine their projects in a program that encourages exploration.
At CinemaKidz, we listen to children. Kids are involved in every step of filmmaking from start to finish. Children gain a real sense of ownership over their work, and build confidence. Children master a tool they can use to express their creative voice and ideas beyond the program.
Film is a powerful medium to share ideas and express your creative voice. It is a means to explore the world around us. At CinemaKidz, we offer the best filmmaking classes for kids. Children discover their passions and get hands on experience with the latest technology and equipment, while having fun and learning to express themselves.
