Show off & capture your comedy skills in Constellation Stage & Screen's special moviemaking class, SNL: School Night Laughs for Kids (Grades 3-4)! This immersive & experiential variety show-style course will give young comedians the opportunity to work on a safe, fun, and collaborative film set, creating bite-sized sketch comedy shorts that will be edited into a mini-SNL episode! Schoolnight Update, kooky commercials, and silly sketches provide the perfect playground for the creative kid!
Students will will learn and actively participate in two stages of production:
Pre-Production/Development: In the first 5 weeks, students will get a combined “writer’s room” and "improv troupe" experience--a collaborative space where the groundwork for creative ideas comes together. Students will learn character- and world-building techniuques and explore elements of sketch comedy writing as they develop their unique material.
Production/Filming: In the final 2 weeks, each student will get a professionally guided hands-on experience to make their sketches come to life in front of the camera as they learn how to effectively communicate as actors and filmmakers.
Come ready to find your funny & creative voice!
