Join us for an evening of short films by MKE Film’s Take 1 Teen filmmaking lab cohort. This program is curated by Nati Rodriguez, a young Latinx artist from Milwaukee.

Take 1 is a free opportunity for any teens in the Milwaukee area to learn the filmmaking process from start to finish and make their own short films along the way. Their work spans many genres and styles, but all connect thematically to show you what it’s like to be a Teen in Milwaukee and what the next wave of artists in the city has to say.

A little on Take 1:

Teen Filmmaking Lab is an instructional and collaborative program for any high schoolers in the Milwaukee area to come together and learn more about filmmaking. Over the course of the semester, students will learn about each stage of the filmmaking process from start to finish–everything from coming up with that very first idea, to writing, to production skills like cinematography, sound design, directing actors, costumes, and more, to editing your film and getting it out for the world to see.

The group is instructed by two practicing filmmakers in Milwaukee that cover a wide range of experience in both fiction and documentary work. Along the way, students will have the chance to work with equipment in hands-on workshops and activities and will be joined by visiting filmmaker guests from Milwaukee (and sometimes from across the country!) to share their experiences and advice.
