MOVIE: "Scaredy Cat Superheroes" - a film by the Tuesday class

As mentioned in prior posts, Court 13 runs what could best be termed an after school program for the handful of talented, creative, and hilarious kids who we have chosen to appear in our next big feature film... the name of which you already know, if you read this blog at all, so I will refer to it with a title that one might use to tout its concept in one of those anxious Hollywood pitch sessions--"FIDDLER ON THE LEVEE."

Before they appear in "FIDDLER ON THE LEVEE," we wanted to give these micro-performers some experience acting and making a movie. So each of the three classes came up with their own story ideas for a short film, and, as a kind of final project, we shot them, edited them, and premiered them. We think they're pretty good!

We'll be rolling all three out over the next couple weeks, but for right now, here's the Tuesday class movie, "SCAREDY CAT SUPERHEROES." Starring Amari, Jonshel, Lauren, Nathan, Nyla, Theodore, and Mr. Chris. We tried to drop it on YouTube, but music industry tyrants jacked our audio before you could say "fair use." You can protest the handicapped version here.

Look for the Wednesday movie, described as "Polanski-esque," and the Thursday movie, a murder mystery without any murder (we swear, parents), coming soon.
