In this exciting, hands-on program, you’ll become part of a film crew that gets to write, direct and produce an original movie! Each crew will work with an experienced film maker to learn the basics of screenwriting, storyboarding, camera angles, acting, and directing, as they create their own short digital movie. Students will also have the opportunity to learn the basics of video editing as they prepare their final project. After the camp, all students will be provided with access to a downloadable version of the films, so they can share their work with family and friends.
