Our program has enrollment for students ages 8 to 18 years of age. If you want to learn about the film business we want to teach you.
Rising Reels provides support for the communities, this is where education happens, and our approach extends beyond the school by networking with local production companies to help ensure that students have a full experience and the necessary support to do their best in learning.
We provide state-of-the-art multimedia equipment for educational and operational use. We work with the kids to draw out their passion in film, whether it’s in front or behind the camera.
Our in-person film camps and after school programs are located within the communities that we serve. We recognize that BIPOC youth thrive when they are taught in familiar surroundings and mentored by qualified instructors where the majority look and sound like they do; instructors who understand the challenges and nuances unique to people of color.
Rising Reels has created a series of upcoming projects that will continue to show our Seattle youth how vast theatre/film is. From training on the latest media tools to new classes on acting and the process of film making.
We want to give everyone a chance to experience filmmaking, who better to tell the experience of being a BIPOC child than our BIPOC children” Trina Griffin Owner
To provide high-quality and affordable filmmaking instruction to BIPOC youth from within underserved communities
Our workshops are free and open to the first 20+ kids who sign up. Local creatives who work in the art of production share with the students the language, challenges, and techniques to making a film. Using demonstration, video, hands on and Q&A to bring a really learning experience to the four hours.
Our Summer camp, at a low affordable cost is where we really get down to making a film. We group the students in age-appropriate groups. Teach them the process from pre-production to postproduction of how to make a film. When the program is over at the end of the month, the groups will have created their own film as a team that will then be later submitted to local film festivals.
