The Georgia National Guard teamed up with the State Family Readiness Support Team to host a free Film Retreat for local military youth. #MilKids worked together to write, act, produce, direct, and edit their own short feature-film with the help of local actors and producers! The film will be featured in two segments... a promo video/commercial (included below) and a full-feature short film (coming soon!). If you want to be included in the next film activity with our Youth Team, join us at our summer film camp, which can be accessed on this site under the events tab. Contact our office/staff if you have any questions.
Come join us at the Ellenwood Armory on May 7th from 10am - 2pm as we explore the world of film. Parents, this is a free event for youth participants, and drop-off/pickup is available 30 minutes post and prior to the event times. Lunch is FREE and we have local Atlanta actors/directors in attendance as guests. Contact Shelly Williams or Kristina Cromer for more information.
