Lights! Camera! Action! Teen Students to Learn Filmmaking Skills at Granada Video Workshop

Aspiring young filmmakers are invited to learn from the best at The Granada Theatre Video Workshop. The winter session’s ten-week course begins Jan. 4, 2016.

Teen students will learn fundamentals of video production in twice-weekly classes led by filmmaker Jennie Reinish of Tidepool Pictures and Riviera Productions.

This incredible opportunity for Santa Barbara’s ambitiously creative students is made possible by the Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts (SBCPA) Jurkowitz Center for Community Engagement.

The Granada Theatre Video Workshop provides students the opportunity to meet and learn from many respected film and video industry professionals while gaining valuable hands-on experience with both filming and editing. 

Students will learn essential camera and video editing skills including technical filming, storytelling, interview techniques, teamwork and more. Students can also earn community service hours by creating video projects for local nonprofit organizations.

Returning and/or experienced students may qualify for the advanced tier, an opportunity to create original projects using Adobe Premiere software and working closely with The Granada Theatre staff to craft videos that support advertising efforts for the theater’s programs. 

Classes are held at the Santa Barbara County Education Office, located at 4400 Cathedral Oaks Road, Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:45-5:30 p.m.

To enroll, please call Reinish at 805.452.7069 or email [email protected].

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
