After last year’s inaugural FRAMED West Coast camp was such a success, we’re thrilled to be launching FRAMED West Coast 2013!
From April 28 to May 3, Grenfell students will be able to work with Jackie Hynes, award-winning filmmaker and Program Manager for St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival, to create a short film from start to finish. Jackie will take students through the entire process, from make-up and site scouting to filming and editing.
Last year’s FRAMED West Coast film, Must Be a Zombie Apocalypse, even went on to screen at a few film festivals.
FRAMED West Coast is open to all Grenfell students, no matter what their level of experience. Anyone interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org and all participants must register by April 15th. There is a $25 registration fee.

Now in its 12th year, our FRAMED Film Education Series offers free, high-quality filmmaking camps to youth in order to encourage, support and train them in the craft and business of filmmaking. Camps include FRAMED Doc, a camp for documentary filmmaking; FRAMED Drama, a camp for fictional film; and FRAMED Animation, a camp that creates an animated film. Past FRAMED Doc partners include The Brother T.I. Murphy Centre, Choices For Youth, and the Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council.
During last year’s FRAMED West Coast, seven post-secondary students made a hilarious dead-pan zombie flick called Must Be A Zombie Apocalypse, written by Jana Gillis. The film was shot in Corner Brook and post-production took place in Stephenville. Participants were also treated to a screenwriting workshop with John Doyle and a set protocol workshop with Dana Warren. For more pictures from their zombie make-up workshop and from the shoot, check out the Cornerbrooker blog here and here.
Last year, we also partnered with For the Love of Learning for FRAMED Doc St. John’s, an intensive documentary filmmaking camp. From June 24th to June 29th, 2012, a team of 10 youth workshopped, prepped, shot and edited an entire documentary under the expert guidance of none other than Latonia Hartery (Rum Running).
