The Camp is open to anyone entering 6th grade through 12th grade. (from any school district) We will write, direct, act and shoot a film together. We will create our story, develop our characters and design sets. Then we will get a crash course in camera work and filming techniques using digital video equipment. Putting all the skills together we will spend the week making our film. All participants will spend time in front of and behind the camera with the opportunity to focus on the parts of film making they enjoy most.


Day #1: We work on script structure through writing exercises and other techniques. We will come up with our storyline and roles for the Film. Plus we will learn about the camera, camera angles, shots, soundtracks, locations, terminology, breaking down a script and the shooting schedule.

Day #2: Is all about the ACTOR. We will work on improv, audition technique for Film/TV, Commercial Copy/scenes. We will do our first read of the final draft of our script and discuss wardrobe, make-up and props and rehearse.

Day #3 & Day #4: We shoot our film.

Day #5: Let’s edit, add sound and the credits! We will make a rough cut.

Parents, friends and fans are all welcome to a screening at 2:30 of our film.

A copy of the final edit will be given to everyone and the film will be aired on our Public Access channel.
