Our Arts program was created to bring an appreciation of the fine arts into students' lives by discovering individual talents, encouraging original expression, and fostering creative discovery. On campus, Students experience live professional performances in the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, see professionally curated exhibits in the PACE Galleries, and display their own works of art in the Nadler Gallery.

Experience a hands-on introduction to screenwriting, storyboarding, and basic shooting and editing techniques. You will learn to use HD video cameras and professional editing software and equipment so be ready to start learning to make movies that you will be proud of.

Film Workshop II: The Independent Filmmaker

In this class you will learn more advanced filmmaking skills leading to the creation of your own original short films. Professional cameras, lighting and Final Cut editing software will give you access to some of the same tools actually used in the motion picture industry today. (Film Workshop I and/or teacher approval required for participation in this class.)

FA Film Workshop Videos

Original videos created by students of the Fryeburg Academy Filmmaking Workshop in western Maine. Everyone is urged to submit his or her finished films to be featured during the Fryeburg Academy Awards Show on the “big screen” at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center at the end of the year. 
This is a 2018 FA Film Workshop project for the "Stage to Screen" class. The film screened as part of the 37th Annual Asbury Film Concert -- a professional touring show of award-winning short films from around the world. FA Film Workshop was honored to be included and the audience was impressed by our young filmmakers' work.
