Fall 2016, LIFT (Learning Is For Tomorrow), 901 N. Milton Avenue

In this digital filmmaking workshop fellows will release their imaginations to create and find their places in a fantastical Baltimore of the future.  They'll be encouraged to conceive outside of boundaries and physical laws.  Brainstorming sessions featuring poetry, art, fashion, and music will help fellows begin to free-associate as they prepare to channel the delights of the nonsensical through Adobe Creative Cloud.  Fellows will work collaboratively and independently and each will make a complete, short film.  Limited to 10 student fellows.
