PEOPLE'S

HOLLYWOOD

 

We can demystify filmmaking by  showing  how making a low/no budget short film can be a fun social, creative and skill building activity. A new kind of game night! Played by families, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and strangers. 

THE CRIME &

RECOVERY 

 

Too often we're not encouraged to be creative or problem solvers in our everyday lives,  which can  become just about survival and being entertained. Working on even one short film awakens abilities and ambitions you can apply to other areas of life.
