Fresh Filmmakers combines two elements: students who need expert mentorship and resources to fulfill their passions with a community-focused non-profit that has a story to tell.

To us, it isn’t just about offering students workshops on marketing and video production to increase their confidence in the industry. It’s using mentorship as a vehicle to pay it forward to a deserving audience.

FRESH FILMMAKERS

A Koi-Fly Creative Social Impact Brand

"When I signed up to participate with Koi-Fly I was very excited but also very nervous. I learned so many new things, from Stacey teaching me about leadership and running a woman-owned business to all Eric’s cool cameras and drones to Leslie, who taught me how to interview people on camera."

— Stephanny, Fresh Filmmakers Class of 2019

Experiential learning taught by skilled mentors, using state-of-the art tools and countless resources to inspire students to embrace their passions. This leads to deeper learning, greater self esteem and happiness throughout all facets of life.

Experiential Learning

THE FOUR PILLARS

Having access to professional mentorship and resources increases learning, especially in high-level visual media and creative marketing. Our workshops and experiential learning are provided by the award-winning Koi-Fly in-house crew.


Mentorship

THE FOUR PILLARS

Being driven by service to others awakens compassion, understanding, and gratitude. At the end of the semester, the students pay it forward by creating a pro-bono video for a philanthropic partner of Koi-Fly’s.

Service To Others

THE FOUR PILLARS

Having a creative outlet has been proven to help mitigate stress in teens and young adults. Through hands-on art direction, whether via storyboarding, scripting or post-production, students are able to immerse themselves in creativity.


Creative Expression

THE FOUR PILLARS

Experienced, award-winning mentors conduct hands-on workshops with the Fresh Filmmakers to prepare for a philanthropic partner client video shoot. The mentors take a 360-degree approach to the curriculum to ensure the Fresh Filmmakers fully embrace the production and creative processes.
