Film Camp for Kids & Youth
- This event has passed.
Since 2013, our filmmaking day camps will be offered Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4:30 PM, by age group. Participants are welcome to sign up for as many weeks as they wish. Each week is as different as the films so it is never the same experience.
Filmmaking Camp: Ages 12-14 | Monday-Friday from 9am-4:30pm | $225
Visual Arts Camp (Ages 8-12) | Monday-Friday from 9am-4:30pm | $225 + $15 for Supplies
The week involves making a film in one week, including the writing, filming, acting and editing.
Camp participants are grouped by age and no previous experience is required.
Each film crew (team) has two staff Instructors, where possible a male and a female.
Games and outings are also planned by instructors to give participants a break from movie-making.
We understand that acting is not for everyone so camp participants can choose to work in front of the camera, behind the camera, or both.
The camp supplies the equipment and materials, but the parents pack a nut-free lunch, sunscreen and water.
Returning participants rotate groups so they make films with different staff Instructors and different participants.
Other Examples of Camps:
Animation camps run similar to film camps, and also vary week to week because the product changes as the groups do.
Art camps are where participants learn all sorts of techniques. Depending upon the production or drying time, each day could mean learning a new form of art or it could be an extension of the day before – painting, drawing, crafts, and more. Each camp is different and parents can confirm the topics before registering.
Writing camps often cover poetry, creative writing and screenwriting.
Music camps focus on scoring music for video.
