EPFC FALL 16 YOUTH CLASS: “LOS ANGELES 2019”

The opening title card of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner reads Los Angeles, November 2019. The film then proceeds to establish the dystopic, dark industrial sprawl of LA. This Fall, the Echo Park Film Center will hold a semester long youth class that explores the future. What does the future look like? What styles, subcultures, films and music will emerge? What will our city look like? The participants of this class will explore futurist thinking by experimentation of sounds and visuals. Throughout the class we will cover experimental techniques of making electronic music as well as creating abstract video and media art. We will study classic science fiction films and literature to excavate the social themes of those times and contemplate what today’s Sci-fi looks like. The class will culminate in a screening of the students final projects… An experimental video art piece with their own music score!

EPFC youth classes are FREE and all materials are covered by the film center.

This class is open to youth age 12-19 will meet weekly on Wednesdays 4:30-6:30PM from September 14 to December 14, 2016. There is a mandatory orientation on Tuesday September 13 at 6pm at EPFC. The final screening will be on Sunday December 11 at a location to be announced.

Bookings are closed for this event.

Cinema Organica at Oxy Arts on York as part of Breaking Bread LA

For this special workshop presented in conjunction with Oxy Arts as part of this year's CurrentLA: Food, LA's public art triennial, participants will work together with Super 8 cameras to create a collaborative film about their neighborhood, then process the analog footage on-site using gathered fruit, flowers and leaves. By substituting organic material for toxic chemical developing agents, participants create vibrant works of art that celebrate and respect the community, ecology and the environment.
