Hi all! My name is Gaby Phillips. For my Capstone project, I’m offering a workshop about Character Design and Storytelling, where you can learn how to create visually appealing characters and how to create a story revolving around them. There will be activities where you’ll have to design characters of your own as well! There is no experience needed in any of these areas to participate. So, if you’re interested in learning more about this topic, please sign up using the Google Form here. It will be happening on Tuesday, February 22nd during Lunch and Office Hours in the Cube. I only have a few spots left for my small workshop so if you’re interested please sign up ASAP. Thank you!

Remember the food drive is ALL week long. Since the Superbowl is coming up, participate in the “Souper” Bowl Food Drive. Donate cans of soup and collect it in your grade level boxes (by the house hallway). The grade with the most cans will win donuts!

Calling all filmmakers, actors, and artists!
The All-American Film Festival is the largest high school film festival in the world judged by industry professionals and celebrities including Kristen Stewart, John Legend, and the creator of Gossip Girl. The goal of the festival is to help high school filmmakers have an opportunity to have their work screened and make industry connections (The selected films are played on festival night at the AMC Empire theatre in Times Square). Currently I am putting together a production team to enter a short film drama this year. If you are interested in working preproduction, production, or postproduction, please click the form below. We need artists of all kinds on our team including actors, extras, editors, cinematographers, makeup artists, composers, musicians, production helpers, set designers, you name it! Some scenes may require time outside of the school day, but I am happy to design the schedule around the needs of the participants! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out at @email@example.com.
