Austin Chronicle's Best of Austin 2008: Best Blackboard Jungle for Budding Auteurs
Austin is a city rich in arts and culture and offers a wide variety of opportunities for up-and-coming visionaries. When it comes to filmmaking – especially for children – there are a number of venues that offer classes here and there, but when you compare variety and quantity, Austin School of Film stands out. Its award-winning youth program, which has been in existence since 1999 as the Center for Youth Cinema, offers small classes for ages 10 to 19 in live-action film, computer animation, and more.
Small classes ensure personal attention and encourage group collaboration in all facets of filmmaking, including screenwriting, visualization, developing narrative, and the entire production and postproduction process.
