YOUTH MAKE SHORT FILM "MOVES"
August 23, 2021- Buffalo inner-city youth, ages 14-17, made a short film this summer with the EXE Jr. Summer Youth Program. The film, "Moves", is an adaptation of a feature length screen play written by it's Directer, Johnette"JA" Warren-Askew. "Moves" will premier online Friday August 27, 2021 at 6 PM. The teens were asked to take the abbreviated script, make it their own and write two alternate endings. The students were also given an introduction to the various jobs that it takes to make a film happen. They then chose jobs, were taught how to do them and executed them as a team to create a finished product.
EXE Jr. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that teaches incoming 7th-12th grade students an introduction to audio and video production, graphic design and photography, spoken word and creative writing. This summer's focus was on videography. Students learned camera work, lighting, sound for film, storyboarding, script writing, editing and more from Marvin R. Askew II and team. Mr. Askew has his Bachelors of Science for Digital Cinematography from FullSail University. Some students went through acting coaching and performed for the first time in a film. "Watching some of them come out of their shells is almost like watching my daughter walk for the first time all over again..", says founding directer JA.
