Apply for The Take 1 High School Filmmaking Course

About Take 1:
Complete the form linked above to be considered for joining the Fall 2022 iteration of this group. Take 1 (previously known as the High School Filmmaking Course) is a community of excitable high schoolers who are interested in learning more about cinema and the filmmaking process, and/or are considering pursuing film in college/career. We will meet once a week on Monday evenings from 5:00pm to roughly 8:00pm weekly for 16 weeks, starting August 29th. Students will be guided through the stages of filmmaking from idea creation to writing to production to editing, creating both one film together as a group and also their own original fiction or documentary films along the way. After the course's completion, students' films will be screened at a special showcase (date TBD in January 2023) at Milwaukee's historic Oriental Theatre!
This course is FREE.

This application will close on Thursday, August 18, at 11:59 p.m. and all applicants will be notified of their status by Friday, August 19.

If you have questions about this application or the program, please email our instructors ( or ) to find out more!
