This week, we were so excited to kick-off a summer of learning and creativity for the awesome children at Uspiritus! The first session featured film industry veterans, Carl Ellsworth and Zach Meiners. Carl, who is currently on contract with Warners Bros. to write the remake of the Gremlins movie, talked with the kids about screenplay writing and assisted them in writing their very own short film. Then, filmmaker and founder/director at Chronicle Cinemas, Zach Meiners, talked to the kids about the different aspects of filming a movie. They were lead through a script-reading and camera-angle test while filming. That’s a wrap on session one of UpstartU 2017 camp at Uspiritus!
