The Seattle Film Institute, founded in 1994, offers the largest film program in the Northwest. SFI provides a variety of hands-on classes:
The Teen Filmmakers Program is a summer filmmaking program for ages 13-18 where students acquire skills in film and video production. The class is a 2 week long, Monday through Friday intensive which culminates with students completing a final project video. Topics of the intensive include lighting, camera, composition and editing.
Advanced Filmmakers for Teens is for youth ages 13-18 who have completed the Summer Teen Program or have previous video experience. Students build on skills they acquired in the previous program by either working on a large collaborative class project or small group project culminating in a screening and a DVD copy of the work.
