Join us in our filmmaking summer camp as we learn to write, act, and make our own short films with this hands-on filmmaking experience! Students will work in small groups to write their own scripts and then rotate acting and filming it out. Students will then edit the short films and add special effects on the computer before watching the final results and getting feedback from their peers. All films created in the camp will be sent to parents after the camp concludes for you to watch together at home!
