What is the Spring Lab at Reel Works?

The Spring Lab is an intensive 10-week, after-school workshop offered FREE to New York City high school students. We match students one-on-one with professional filmmaker-mentors to ensure each student completes the program with a successful film that represents his or her true vision. Mentors can also expose students to the multiple facets of the film and entertainment industry. 
 
Reel Works has partnered with Whistle Sports to create a filmmaking class that offers components of marketing, research and distribution. By the end of the 10 weeks, students will not only understand how to conceptualize, shoot, and edit a film; they will also understand how to identify a target audience as well as how to maximize views. 
 
16 students will be selected for The Lab. Careful consideration will be given to applications who: 
 
1. Complete the application. Deadline is February 15th, 2019. 
Note: The application takes 10-15 minutes and must be completed in one shot otherwise it will not save.
2. Attend an in person interview (dates and times tbd). 
 
Students will be selected 2/21. If selected, students should be prepared to start class on Wednesday, February 27th. Classes take place every Wednesday and Thursday from 4:30pm-6:30pm at the Reel Works office.
