CFAC, a non-profit local arts organization in Cabot, works its mission to promote community through arts and culture. The group formed as a direct result of the founding members’ participation in Uncommon Communities, where they were inspired to do more for the community. The group established the Cabot Art Walk, coordinated the installation of four large-scale murals, and spearheaded the Placemaking Roadmap project. Their website is CabotArt.com
The firehouse short film workshop will empower students to craft compelling and transcendent narratives that are sure to stand out in any film festival. Josh and Dylan will focus heavily on Narrative and Visual storytelling and how to produce your film under extreme budget constraints. The course will also cover basic filmmaking techniques and how they are used to serve the filmmaker’s ultimate goal: moving the audience.
The workshop will be held from 6-9 on Friday evening and from 9-4 on Saturday with a 1-hour lunch break.
