Zechariah and Sara, owners of The Beltonian Theatre, have a passion for the arts and education in Central Texas. This past semester The Beltonian Theatre has partnered up with Salado High School, Belton New Tech High School, North Belton Middle School, The University of Mary-Hardin Baylor CRU Films, the Bell County Film Society, and more. These are bright, creative, award-winning filmmakers. So, we know there is a community of young people in Central Texas who feel inspired to make movies! With the historic venue we have for showing films, it just made sense to bring together that space and these young people, along with a resource like Richard Tolleson to provide a creative outlet for budding filmmakers.
Richard Tolleson is a native of Arkansas who has lived in Temple since 1989. Tolleson was a television news reporter and producer for 19 years in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas. He designed the International Baccalaureate Film program at Temple High School, and taught film at THS for 10 years. Tolleson has also taught various communications classes for UMHB. He currently teaches AP English 3 at Belton High School. Tolleson is married to THS Theatre teacher, Natasha Tolleson, and they have 3 children and one grandchild.
Not required but encouraged to bring a personal iPad with iMovie. That way, they can continue to make movies when they return home. Students can bring lunch or purchase from The Beltonian Theatre menu. Camp includes 35 hours of instruction, a t-shirt, a digital copy of the student’s project, and a daily afternoon snack of popcorn and a drink. The student film showcase will be Friday, July 13 at 6 p.m. at The Beltonian and will be open for ticket sales to the general public.
Students will study classic and seminal films of different genres and styles to inform their work as they write, film, and edit their original projects.
