Summer Creative Workshop
The Summer Creative Workshop mentors promising minority high school students entering their junior and senior years from Los Angeles’ underserved and hard hit middle class communities. Known as Fieberg Fellows after the program’s founding donors Paul and Patti Fieberg, students spend eleven nights and twelve days with LMU students, alumni, staff, professors and guest speakers taking classes in story and screenplay development, direction, film production and the full range of 3-D and 2-D animation. Working in teams, students create two animated shorts and two short films from screenplay to final cut.
July 16 – July 27, 2012
The program will recruit 16 minority and/or underserved students with demonstrated talent in all aspects of media, film, art, and/or creative writing.
High School students are exposed to and gain hands-on experience in all aspects of filmmaking at a college level. The program will expose SCW participants to all aspects of college life with the goal of promoting a greater interest and awareness in a college education.
