The Sylvania Community Arts Commission will again offer the Shorties U in 2019. The Shorties U youth film program was developed for students in fifth through eighth grade to support the young filmmakers in the community. Led by area experts, this four-day workshop experience takes students through the steps of creating their own short films – including developing an idea, writing a script, shooting on a budget and the fundamentals of editing. During the course of the workshop students also participate in making team short films.

This year the workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 26, Feb. 2, 9 and 23.

The registration fee is $75 per student and includes all workshop costs. After registering online, participants will receive an email the week before the workshop begins with the required release forms and more information.
