Court 13, our community filmmaking collective in New Orleans, runs an after school program that teaches acting and moviemaking to the 19 kids (ages 8 - 12) who auditioned to appear in our next feature film, "BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD." This is the Tuesday class's own short movie--based on the kids' own ideas, inspired by their setting at Charles J. Colton School (which was shut down after Katrina).
"Scaredy Cat Superheroes" is about the new girl in school who escapes teasing by finding a group of friends with some pretty strange superpowers... Starring Amari, Jonshel, Lauren, Nathan, Nyla, Theodore, and Mr. Chris.
