The Drexel Crash Course Film event is all about creating a film in 2 hours. The actors & participants come up with the plots, dialogue, and then our featured film maker helps us bring it to life. All you have to do is show up with creativity and register at the door. There are all types of ways to be involved, as actor, a grip, a cameraman/ camerawomen, sound operator, lighting operator, or in charge of costumes. You choose. At this FREE event, youth through adults create a movie in 2 hours, using Vale’s local murals, historic buildings and most importantly a green screen, transporting us to anywhere we may desire. The film created is premiered during the Children’s Film Festival & Film-maker’s Competition, each Sept. The crash course films are also shown in our other free events, such as the Halloween movies showing, or the certificate of achievement program. Click “Other Video Projects” at the menu at the top of the page, to view films created over the years.
