    I am trying to sign my son up for the Feburary 14th light painting class and for some reason it is not in the list of classes after you click register now…

    Dear Carissa,

    I have a budding filmmaker here whom I would like to bring to as many PCFF events/workshops as I can. John (who is 6) is fascinated by filmmaking, and I am constantly feeling ill equipped to help him discover the art form. He is an incredibly bright, self-taught, eager to learn kind of kid. I’m confident he could hold his own in most any learning opportunity you have. I am an artist, and love to play around with him at home – so far we’ve attempted light board animation, claymation, documentary, but honestly, I don’t know what I’m doing! What do you suggest?

    Thanks,

    Julia

    I’m curious as to when the workshops were open for registration. I had been watching for it and missed out.

    Joanne: We opened workshop registration mid-December (by announcing to PCFF subscribers via email) and within a week, 3 out 4 classes were sold out and people started emailing to get on wait list. We had little to no enrollment in Foley and Ligthpainting class so swapped them for an additional Claymation and Sci-fi animation class. They filled quickly within the last week with the wait listed folks.

    Tammy: See note above, the class sign ups were unavailable while we switched over the classes. If you are interested in being placed on a wait list, please email Alyssa at office at pcffri dot org.

    We wish we could offer / add more classes to meet the demand but alas cannot because we have a limited group of teachers, equipment, and classroom space. And we cannot make the class size larger since we want to ensure that the kids enrolled get the most out of the experience in hands on learning. Too many kids in the class would result in kids sitting and not doing. Make sure you are on the mailing list (and add PCFF to your address book to keep us out of your spam folder) to be the first to hear about the workshops and other events in the future!

    Julia: Sign up for email newsletter to hear about everything going on at the Festival. We have great films, presentations, and a fun drop-in workshop at Providence Children’s Museum on February 6. Plus you should bring your son John to see the Youth Filmmaker Showcase where he can see films made by other kids and hear other young kids talk about making film: http://providencechildrensfilmfestival.org/films/youth-filmmaker-showcase-2016-w-group-workshop-reel/

    Hope this helps!
