Why make a film?
Filmmaking inspires confidence, fosters creative thinking and encourages kids to explore different methods of collaboration and group work. And it’s seriously fun!
Here's what some of our past Trop Jr finalists have said about their filmmaking experience:
“Taking an idea, writing a script, filming and directing, working with my best friends, composing music, singing and last minute post-production, was all exciting, stressful and exhilarating. The whole process was magical and seeing the finished copy made me want to make more”
Emily O’Connell, The Cascades, Trop Jr 2012 Runner-Up
“The best part of making my film was knowing that I was finally taking a shot at something I have wanted to do for a long time now”
Lauren Crowther, Freshly Squeezed, 2012 Trop Jr Finalist
“The best part of making my Trop Jr film was working with other people, sharing ideas, trying new things and using the cameras and editing software”
Bodhi Stone and Co, Juice Lords, 2012 Trop Jr Finalist
