Screen Writing Camp

The health and safety of our students, staff, and their families is our top priority. We have made the difficult decision to suspend in-person camps this summer and transition the majority of the camps to an online, virtual format. This camp will now be offered as an online program.

We are excited to offer this camp in this new format. Our instructors are working hard to create a fun and engaging camp in a virtual environment. We look forward to having you join us this summer!

For our currently registered students, we will be contacting you directly via e-mail to confirm your intention to remain in the virtual camp. We will also begin processing full refunds for all Residential, Extended Day, and Lunch Voucher Fees.

If you have questions about the new virtual camps, contact us at questions@georgiacenter.uga.edu.

When we think of our favorite movies, we often remember the actors, the directors, and the ways in which the story unfolds visually. But we sometimes forget, before the movie was directed and performed, it was written! In this introductory virtual camp, you will learn how to tell a story visually, which includes creating compelling narrative and tight dialogue. You will also learn the accepted screenwriting format.
