School Break Camps

What stories will your child bring to life?  

Ages: 8-12 and 13 - 15 year old Film Camps offered for all sessions.  Ages 5-7 Animation Camp offered February and April Breaks.

Times: Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Every week of film camp covers the basics of how to make a movie from start to finish, no experience is necessary!  Kids will learn how to write their own scripts, storyboard, operate professional camcorders and DSLRs, act in front of a camera and edit using Final Cut Pro.  Camps are capped at 14 students and will result in 2 or more short films by the end of the week.  Our camps are completely hands-on so whenever kids are not acting, they are working the camera, holding the boom or calling the shots.  Animation Camps for younger students will explore stop-motion, rotoscoping, pixilation and more in fun daily projects.
