For the past 3 years, our talented and ambitious Fellows have endeavored to write, produce, and edit narrative short films based on the idea of living for something greater.
The Fellowship provides unique obstacles that each team must work to overcome. As a result, they are stretched and grow not only as filmmakers, but as individuals and teammates.
We are continually amazed at what the Fellows are able achieve in their 2 short weeks at Fellowship, and hope they walk away with something they are proud of.
