About the Program:
Urban Exposure Summer Film Program is an eight-week summer program for young people highlighting the fundamentals of filmmaking including writing, directing, and editing. Under the supervision of experienced filmmakers, high school, and college-aged students work with one another to realize their creative visions and produce their own films from start to finish. By the end of the program, each participant writes, films, edits, and presents their films to the community at a premiere event held at the Figge Art Museum.
Urban Exposure is offering two new components:
Acting for Film Workshop – This 2 week (twice a week) acting component allows students to participate in a short training workshop that requires full involvement in learning the craft of film acting.
Set Production Crew/Assistant Workshop – This 2 week (twice a week) set production crew/assistant component is a boot camp-style workshop. The Set Production Crew/Assistant Boot Camp takes students through the entire process in just four days. Students will learn how to work on a film set, production terminology & paperwork, essential film crew titles and job descriptions, set protocol, how a typical day progresses, locking up the set, how to help set the background, and walkie sign out.
Our 2016 program was funded by the Iowa Arts Council, in part by Quad City Arts Dollar$, The Figge Arts Museum and Azubuike African American Council for the Arts.
