Real to Reel at Cinema Salem

June 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm June 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

This is a free event, the films will be on a constant loop from 12PM-5PM both Saturday and Sunday.

Through an aesthetic, emotional, and technical exploration of cinema, Raw Art Work’s Real to Reel students creatively engage in the art of visual storytelling. Our teens are able to validate their own stories and experiences through the creation of honest and often deeply personal films. From pre-production through post-production, our students learn the responsibilities of preparing, shooting, finishing and exhibiting a film. They learn what it really means to say, “I’m a filmmaker.” In the process of learning how to make films, our students gain a larger understanding of the role popular media plays in their lives and how it affects both their identity and their worldview.  

While some of our students pursue filmmaking after high school, that is not necessarily the goal: Real to Reel focuses on 21st century skill building; important life skills that translate far beyond the film industry. Students from the program have continued onto many different career fields from engineering to photography, and art therapy.–
