Screen Writing Camp

Summer academy registration is now open
Register for the Camp

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 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. At the end of camp, your screenplay will be distributed to students in our Digital Film Advanced Intensive Camp, who may select your work for production.
