You will become part of an experienced film crew that gets to direct, produce and edit its own movies. During the first part of the week, you will learn more advanced techniques of film production through demonstrations and hands-on exercises. Crews will learn how a company works together to produce a professional quality film. The second part of the week will be devoted to shooting and editing your final project. You will walk away with a strong understanding of the production process and the ability to make both practical and artistic decisions to create the cinematic look you are after. All final products will be featured in the UGA Film Camp Festival on July 17th, 2020 and on the camp’s Youtube channel for all to see.

Prerequisites:
This course is designed to accommodate students with some prior experience with digital video. Students are grouped into film crews at the beginning of the week, based on their interests, skill level, and the role(s) they want to explore (acting, directing, camera operation, crew, etc.). Many students attend this camp for multiple years, since the camp’s structure continuously provides new experiences and opportunities for growth. For students with less experience, check out Digital Film Basic: Session A and Session B or Digital Film School: Intermediate.

What you need for camp/program: 

You will have access to shared camcorders, microphones, tripods and dollies in this camp. With parental permission, students may bring their own video camera to camp, but Summer Academy at UGA is not responsible for keeping track of students' personal belongings, and is not liable for anything that gets lost or broken.

We recommend that all of our students bring a water bottle and small day bag to carry everyday items/supplies.

Our staff takes great care to provide everything your child needs for their camp’s specific needs. Please look for the camp outline for required program supplies in your parent information e-mail sent three weeks before your camp. Overnight supply lists will be included.
