FREE STORY DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP FOR TEENS

It’s obvious teens have stories to tell. We invite your teen to help pick the topic and develop the story for this summer’s PROJECT AWARE Summer Film Institute (SFI) that will happen August 13-17 at Engine (separate registration for SFI).

3 FREE SESSIONS: First session, meet the award-winning director that the kids will be working with, Michael Nickles. We’ll screen his movie JUST PECK and have some pizza and talk about some issues that are hot on teens’ minds. 2ND and 3RD sessions will get right into story development with Nickles.

PLEASE REGISTER HERE

You can attend any one or all three sessions. You’ll need to register for each one individually. We need you to know how many people to expect.

COME TO ONE OR ALL:

SUNDAY APR 15: Pizza and screening of JUST PECK starring Academy-award winner Brie Larson and Q&A with director Michael Nickles
SUNDAY APR 22: Work session & snacks with Nickles
SUNDAY APR 29: Work session & snacks with Nickles

Voice your ideas and make a difference! PROJECT AWARE makes student-led films to raise awareness about youth social issues. Participation in the story development workshop is free and doesn’t obligate you to the SFI.

SHAWN JAMES APRIL 28

Shawn James (Acoustic)
HAUNTING FOLK // DARK RAW BLUES // POWERFUL SOUL

Shawn James’ blend of blues, folk & soul music is full of contrasts–dark and light, anger and joy, earthy and airborne–while remaining gritty and real.

Since releasing his first album in the fall of 2012, his music has reached millions of people. His songs have been featured on CBS, HBO, The Discovery Channel and most recently in Sony Playstation’s trailer for their upcoming blockbuster game “The Last of Us 2”.

Shawn James brings extreme passion to his music. You feel it in the imaginative, highly nuanced songwriting and see it in the powerful live shows where there’s never the slightest hesitation and nothing is held back. And, most importantly, you can hear it resonate in Shawn’s most powerful instrument: the unique, soulful voice that sounds like it is literally being torn out of his heart…and it is something you won’t soon forget.

+ December 2016 – “Through the Valley” – #1 Viral Track on Spotify Global

+ “Through the Valley” – Sony PlaySation trailer for the game The Last of Us Part II

+ Music featured on CBS, HBO, Discovery Channel and Sony.
