Medium Cool Film School

an after-school production

Medium Cool Film School is an after-school program based in Portland, Oregon. We aim to teach kids the craft of filmmaking by MAKING films. Each class is split into two small groups. Each group will write a script and a shot list, and together they will shoot and act their film. In post-production, each student will be supplied an iPad and get to edit their own film as they envision it. 

Filmmaking is as challenging as it is fun. And we will certainly be challenged, both technically and personally, but most importantly, we will have fun! 

We encourage our students to think before they create, to use limitation as inspiration, and to develop their own unique perspective and share it through our favorite (and the coolest) medium—film.
