Adventures in Filmmaking
Get started on your adventure to making your own films! Whether you are excited to produce video for the internet or the big screen this course prepares students for a future in filmmaking.
Over the first two days, students will learn how to develop story ideas with small production teams. While creating a short commercial or similar project, students practice shooting and editing techniques to create a cohesive movie and apply the design thinking process to peer critiquing. Over the last three days, students will continue to develop their filmmaking skills while completing a final (passion) project of their choice. The week will conclude with a film festival during Open House. Attendees will leave camp with the production skills required to create a movie, along with footage of their very own short film!
