Learn the tricks and techniques that go into making movies and television. Campers work as a creative team, completing an epic project inspired by the week's theme.
Due to COVID-19 safety measures, this camp will be held outside in summer 2021. Elements of every technique listed below are worked into our new, outdoor-based curricula.
Movie Making Camp includes three daily movie making intensives, lunch and a bonus film period or activity period.
Campers learn essential techniques such as continuity, camera angles, filters and effects. Each project and its lessons are geared toward the age of the participating campers.
To make their mini-projects spectacular, stories have been fashioned like movie mad libs, but instead of missing words, there are missing scenes. This allows the campers to really concentrate on acting in their project without getting bogged down by all the post-production work a movie requires. Campers experience post production for the scenes they acted in, but the rest is waiting and ready to go.
