Our Film School
ONLINE KIDS CLASSES
Our flagship FILMMAKING CLASS introduces students to the whole filmmaking process, from writing to filming to editing. Students get top industry tips & can practice along with their devices.
Our SCRIPTWRITING 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.
Our CONTENT CREATION CAMP is for the future YouTuber, director, or someone obsessed with visual media. From videography classes to editing workshops, students master all the pro tools.
In our FILM CAMP, students make their very own short film at home, and collaborate with kids globally to make it happen!
Our On-Demand Camp is a hybird of our film & content creation camps, 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 do they need to prep before class?
A 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.
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!
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!
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.
The Mavericks HUB
Founder Flavia Casà curates bite-size content for families
to enjoy together, centered around storytelling.
From films & cinematography, to cooking & poetry,
Flavia blogs about what inspires her and what she
learns from in her career as a writer/director.
