If you are a high school student interested in filmmaking, you should sign up for JuiceMedia!
Throughout the semester, students have the opportunity to create two solo film projects in whatever style or genre they choose. In the past, students have created narrative, documentary, experimental, poetic, animated films, and more. To see examples of some of these films, visit JuiceMedia’s Vimeo page: https://vimeo.com/groups/juicemedia. JuiceMedia students often enter their films in both local and national film festivals and many of them have gone on to film school or careers in the film industry.
On top of their main projects, JuiceMedia students also participate in workshops, games, mini group projects, and visiting artist talks. Since the program is currently online, we’re able to bring visiting artists in from all over the country! Last semester, we had artists visit from Los Angeles and New York on top of local filmmakers from the Twin Cities and the greater Minnesota area.
Students also connect outside of our normal JuiceMedia meetings through weekly film watch parties and open labs (or TeaTimes). TeaTimes happen twice weekly and allow students to receive feedback or extra work time on projects, but also time to discuss and analyze films and the film world.
Applications for our Spring 2021 session are now CLOSED, however check back in early September for our Fall 2021 JuiceMedia program!
