WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO:
The Intelligent Seedz Documentary Filmmaking Bootcamp is a 12- week, HANDS ON, youth media program that guides students through every stage of documentary film production from concept to finished project. We support and train young filmmakers who will revolutionize the quality and integrity of future multi-media entertainment by using their talents to promote the greater social good.
Our program equips young creatives with the specialized skills they need to produce high quality short form digital content, by teaching them the technical and creative aspects of digital filmmaking and media production. From their first day, students are immersed in the world of film production.
