While the workshops listed above are for ages 13 and over, CineCorps' overall goal will be working to pair aspiring young filmmakers with industry professionals in mentor-like relationships, in order to foster a new age in the film community of Idaho. In addition to many year round workshops, and programs that will be offered, CineCorps will strive for a unique approach to education by placing youth on real world feature film sets each summer, working alongside well known filmmakers, crew, and talent. The long term hope is to build a trained industry of team oriented professionals, that are ready to work on major projects coming into Idaho.
With proven statistical data, combined with a sustained effort to show off Idaho's cinematic potential, we anticipate returning to the conversation of tax incentives and further movie industry development in the years to come. Step one is to invest in our youth by working to fully realize our mission, which is to provide a youth filmmaking activity with positive educational experiences that promote the growth and development of professional workforce skills and leadership qualities needed to advance our community into the motion picture industry.
Beginning this fall, CineCorps will be headquartered at Lake Harbor in association with Hall Institute for the Arts. Find CineCorps online at www.CineCorps.org
