Court 13's Filmmaking Class Movie Premiere

Over the past 3 months Court 13 has been teaching Filmmaking and Acting Classes at the Studio at Colton to 3 groups of children ages 7-12 from the New Orleans area. As the final project of the classes, the kids led the creative process of making films; they came up with the ideas for the stories, acted in all the roles, and even improvised some of their own dialogue.

The 19 children in the classes were selected from over 300 kids who auditioned from a wide variety of public schools in Orleans, St. Bernard, and Jefferson Parishes. In addition to taking the class and making these films, all of the students in the class will appear in Court 13’s feature film.

This Thursday, July 2nd at 7:30 PM we will be premiering the 3 movies the children made in the classes. The premiere will take place in the Auditorium at the Colton School at 2300 St. Claude Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

Below are a few photos from the classes.
