Seattle's first and only KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Boot Camp is now taking applications
Young teens learn how to critique major motion pictures and interview celebrities
"We are thrilled to be hosting the KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Boot Camp at Rainer Arts Center. The KIDS FIRST! camps offer a one-of-a-kind experience for kids who really love film," said Kathy Fowells, SEEDArts Director, SouthEast Effective Development.
The KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Boot Camp is designed to offer young people the opportunity to learn the skills they need to critique and review films, present their reviews on-camera and interview celebrities. "Children will learn a variety of behind-the-scenes film industry skills as they watch and critique the latest films, write reviews, develop on-camera reporting and interview techniques and meet working film critics, celebrities, directors and producers of some of their favorite films," said Ranny Levy, the Coalition for Quality Children's Media's Founder and President.
"It made me improve my vocabulary and write even more because I didn't use to like writing," said Angel David Gonzales who participated in the organization's camp in Brooklyn, NY last summer. The normally shy Gonzalez's teacher, Madeline Rodriguez commented that participating in the camp boosted his confidence as well. "It's really nice to see him open up from his shell, to really embrace this experience and opportunity,"
Following the camp, campers will have the opportunity to join the KIDS FIRST! Film Critics team of reporters. Reviews by KIDS FIRST! Film Critics reach more than seven million viewers every month through affiliations with broadcast, print and online publications including Huffington Post, Kidzworld.com, GRAND Magazine, Kidsville News, Working Woman and many more.
