This event is on May 26th, 2015 at 6:30pm

The first step in making a film is to plan ahead. To help you get started on your film for the Basehor Library Independent Film Festival, we’re offering a class on how to create a storyboard for your short film or video. The process of story boarding helps you visualize your idea before you start filming. After you learn how to storyboard in May, attend our June classes on make-up and editing.  With these classes to help you, you’ll be able to create a winning video.  Registration is required.

The second annual Basehor Library Independent Film Festival (BLIFF) will be held Saturday, September 26, 2015. Entry forms are available now at the library.
