Youth Film Camp offered in July in Exeter, NH

Film Camp - with Bethany Constance, Talent Manager & Film Producer, and Doug York, Director & TV Channel Coordinator, SAU 16/EXTV 98

When: Week of July 6-10 (10 a.m.-3 p.m.)
Where: Exeter High School, 1 Blue Hawk Drive, Exeter, NH
What to bring: Paper and pencil, snacks/drinks/lunch

The Camp is open to anyone entering grades 6-12. 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 will work on script structure for writing a film, decide on the plot, seek locations, and have an outline/rough draft by the end of the day. Plus learn about film making. We will discuss 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 to shoot and discuss wardrobe, make-up and props.
Day #3 - We begin to shoot our film.
Day #4 - We shoot!
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 2:15 p.m. 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.
