Digital Film School: Intermediate

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 in iMovie, as they prepare their final project to be shown to the public at the annual Summer Academy Film Festival, which is held at the end of the summer for all students, family and friends. Students who bring a mobile storage device can leave with their work. After the Film Festival, all students will be provided with access to a downloadable version of the films, so they can share their work with family and friends. This camp is designed for students with some experience working with film.
