About our

CINEMAVERICKS_1021_Logos_Univers graphique1.png
Our Courses
Our flagship
Filmmaking 101 Class introduces studetns to the whole filmmaking process, from writing to filming to editing. Students can practice along with their devices. 

Screenwriting Class digs deep into writing for film. Students usually come with a story idea in mind, and we explore how to turn that into a screenplay.
Content Creation Camp is for the future YouTuber, vlogger, or someone obsessed with visual media. Students make videos and master the art of creating thought-provoking content. 

In our
Filmmaking Camp, students make their very own short film at home, and collaborate with kids from around the globe to make it happen! 

On-Demand Classes are the same filmmaking camp, but recorded so that students can follow along at their own pace and make their movie at home. 
Free Taster Session
This is a free session open to students & parents alike. If you're not sure if CineMavericks is right for your child, or if you want to meet the staff, this is an open-session where we can answer any questions from our community. Feel free to drop in and we'll go over key course materials! 

What activities will students participate in? 
Our classes are a mix of theory discussions, interactive games, independent thinking, & hands on practice! Online, we create a true
virtual film set environment, where kids can collaborate with others from around the globe
What do they need to prep before class?
smartphone, tablet, or camera with enough space to
record video. We suggest downloading
iMovie for Macs or 
Premiere Rush for PC/Android if they don't already use an app. 

How advanced are the classes?
Students don't need any prior filmmaking experience, but classes are designed to support more tech-savvy learners. We
demystify the filmmaking process to make it accessible for people of all backgrounds &  levels. 
Who are the instructors?
CineMavericks was founded by NYU Film graduate Flavia  Casà. Her mission is to help young people
craft their unique points of view and expand their imaginations through film.  Instructors are a mix of industry professionals, educators,  community builders, and creative facilators.  
How can parents support their child during the course?
Guardians are encouraged to share
which soft skill they'd like their child to improve upon & we'll personalise sessions where possible. For the weekly camps, friends & family are invited to watch the students' finished films!

Thanks for your interest!

The Mavericks HUB

Founder Flavia Casà curates weekly content for families
to enjoy together, centered around storytelling.

From films & cinematography, to cooking & poetry,
