INTRO TO STAND-UP COMEDY
Online Spring – May 26 thru June 19
Grades 10-Adult
Thursdays 7-9pm
Instructor: John Mooney
Suggested Donation: $60

Have you ever dreamed of doing stand-up comedy? Have you ever seen a comic on TV or in a club and thought to yourself, “I think I’m funnier than they are.” You just might be. The only difference is they’re doing it…and you’re not. Why don’t we change that? In this four-week course you’ll be given the tools to create 3-5 minutes of stand-up material.
You’ll learn:

• What makes you funny
• How to craft a punchline from a clear premise, including the “rule of three,” subverting expectations, expanding your material when you need to, being improvisational
• Knowing your audience, and how to adjust on the fly
• Stand-up “mechanics” (how to hold the mic, how to be in your body, etc.)
• How to deal with hecklers
• The business of stand-up

Most people are terrified to do stand-up, but when it works, there is nothing like it. I can’t make you funny, but chances are, if you’re interested in being a part of this course, you’re funny to someone besides yourself! Let’s work on making you the best funny you that you can be!  As a bonus, we’ll learn how to hone material for remote performances via Zoom while the world practices social distancing.

Online Spring – May 26 thru June 19, 2020
Grades 5-12
Fridays 2:3–4pm
Instructor: Claude Kerven
Suggested Donation: $60

Good filmmaking is never about the technology but rather the story, the acting and the visuals. Amazing things can be accomplished with even the camera on your phone. Professional filmmakers like Steven Soderbergh, Sean Baker and Michel Gondry have already made the transition to this simpler technology.
This Online Workshop is a hands-on, filmmaker experience designed to provide teens with the opportunity to explore storytelling through the art of film. This experience consists of four 90-minute classes, meeting every Friday at 4pm.
In this 4-Week Online Workshop, students will be introduced to the language and practice of filmmaking so that they can apply this knowledge to the shooting of 3 of their own original films. Students will discuss shooting plans for their film projects and screen their work with their instructor and classmates throughout the course, culminating in a final screening and graduation ceremony.
