Cineplex is a partner with the Directors Cut and also hosts Spring Break camps at various locations.
“We work closely with teachers when we deliver our in-class workshops at schools across the province and sympathize with their situation. We also understand parents will need options for their children during the strike and are offering educational and entertaining film-making workshops from Monday – Wednesday next week,” said Farrah Jinha, BC’s Regional Director.
The Director’s Cut uses state of the art digital hardware and software that provides children with the real “Hollywood” film making experience. Workshops are stop-motion animation film making classes where students work in film crews to develop a script, build clay characters and backdrops, film and then edit their movie with titles, music and voiceovers. They also then get to enjoy a matinee performance of the latest blockbuster children’s film along with a popcorn snack pack. The workshop runs from 9am to 4pm and the cost is $45 plus HST. Students only need to bring a nut-free lunch and their imagination.
Film Making Workshops will be held at the Scotiabank Theatre in Vancouver on Monday March 5th and Wednesday March 7th and at Metropolis Metrotown on Tuesday March 6th. Parents can register their children online at www.thedirectorscut.ca. Space is limited.
