SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK!
Do you love watching scary movies...and secretly wish you could write one? Or STAR in one? What about BOTH?
Let's read some of the classic Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Shwartz, and allow them to inspire original adaptations of our own -- and along the way, let's learn how to utilize jump scares, tension building, basic special effects and creative writing to write and record our own short horror film by the end of this class!
The goal: An original story or digital short film based on one of the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark!
Registration is only $40 per student for all four classes! Designed for teens ages 12-18.
Each live session will last for 1 hour. Students will be sent a private Zoom Video link so they may interact with the instructor via their computer, pad or smart phone device.
