Kids who are into fashion, style, and making videos will love learning about how to make a fashion film. Students will gain inspiration from fashion film viewings that feature fashion in fun and unique ways. We’ll have the experience of working with an industry model and be filming with a rising fashion model. Kids will do simple editing with their footage to have something to share with their peers in a film viewing on the big screen.
