The Athens-Clarke County Library will host a Star Wars Celebration for all ages on Saturday, December 12. As part of this celebration, we want to see your fan-movies set in the Star Wars universe! We’ll start accepting short films in December to be shown in our auditorium as part of the celebration. So dust off your video cameras, get out your lightsabers, and may the force be with you!
To help you out, the Digital Media Center will offer multiple video editing and lightsaber special effects classes in November. Can’t make it to a class? Stop by whenever the DMC is staffed for some pointers. See staffed hours on our online calendar: www.athenslibrary.org/athens/services/dmc/calendar.
