Throughout the school year Future Voices offers an array of in-class workshops, or modules, to enhance your class curriculum and to support the production of your student’s three-minute films and photographs.
We have professional filmmakers and experts in various fields that we send to your classes, if you choose. This year we will try our best to arrange the modules, table reads, and previews as Zoom/online forums. We can also arrange for a professional photographer or a UNM College of Fine Arts graduate student to visit your classroom to share additional knowledge and support your class curriculum.
To arrange an in-class or online workshop, or if you have any questions, please contact:

We understand that our participating schools and organizations are coming from completely different backgrounds both culturally and economically in their respected schools and that we all have different students and various levels of administrative support. We are all different, but we are all creative, and together we can become a resourceful team of film and photo educators. Our hope is that through these modules and support services, each student producing film and photographs will be given a more equal opportunity to create creative pieces.
The Future Voices team wants to meet the needs of your individual students and of your unique programs. If there are any specific areas that you would like modules offered in, please do not hesitate to let us know. The basic modules that are offered are listed below. We extend other exciting opportunities as they become available throughout the year.
- Scripting and Storytelling Support
- Short Film Screenings and Brainstorming Sessions
- Professional Photography Slide Shows and Class Discussion
- Film and Photo Studio Visits
- Final Project Reviews
- Table Reads
- First Edit Previews
Table Reads: A fun exercise where students are prepared with their scripts to sit around a table, as a group during class, and read through their storyline idea or developed a story idea. We brainstorm ideas and give professional advice on production.
First Edit Preview: Similar to a table read, where our filmmaking team returns to view the first edit of the student productions. It’s a great opportunity for students to receive advice on editing, structure, and other aspects of filmmaking. This is great if it can be done similar to the table read, as a group.
