P21 Launches High School Mentorship Program

October 24, 2017 in News by Matt

Project Twenty1 is excited to announce the launch of our High School Mentorship Program. Following on the heels of our highly successful Internship Program, which helped educate all levels of artist from high school through post-college, this program will offer three high school students in the Montgomery County region a chance to learn the ins and outs of filmmaking through a combination of one-on-one lessons, hands-on training, and on-set experience. The program will culminate in building a video or animation project to completion as a team.

This year’s Mentor will be working with the selected students to ensure the curriculum includes a focus on their own talents and interests. The program may include lessons related to anything from film analysis to the creation of a comedy or action movie from scratch.

“We’re very excited about the Mentorship Program,” said Project Twenty1 co-founder Matt Conant. “We’ve run similar programs before, with great success. The goal of this program is to bridge a gap that exists in film education, by allowing these select few high school students to focus their study more intensely on the types of skill sets and projects that ignite their passions. The intention is to help provide a stepping stone to a career path in film, whether as an independent filmmaker or within the studio system. Hopefully this semester will be the first of many.”
