Buffalo Filmmakers Wrap up ROGUE Indie Filmmaker Boot Camp - Welcome to Space Force!

Buffalo Filmmakers Wrap up ROGUE Indie Filmmaker Boot Camp - Welcome to Space Force! This past Friday excited Buffalo filmmakers wrapped up the final day of shooting for Sabrina Peña Young' s ROGUE Indie Filmmaker Boot Camp. The group had five weeks to write, plan, and shoot a short film. The subject - Space Force - lent itself to some hilarious antics from the diverse cast and crew that included both seasoned veterans and newbies to filmmaking. As part of the camp, many filmmakers had a chance to try new aspects of filmmaking that they had never tried before like acting, camerawork, and sound. The result was a short comedic film full of shenanigans and fun.  "Welcome to Space Force" will be screened locally on August 17th.  More information about Welcome to Space Force can be found on our NEW Facebook Page!  Let's make Space Great Again!  Cast and Crew of Welcome to Space Force, Photo Credit: Aaron Webb
