Florida Film Academy

Ready for more advanced filmmaking?

We have options for students ready to tackle the next level of filmmaking:

Our DSLR camps are an excellent introduction to producing short films with large sensor DSLR cameras and independent sound equipment.  This is a more methodical way to film – and the large sensor is similar in size to 35mm movie film and so allows the filmic look in your short films.

In our intensive Pre-College courses, students work with industry professionals as they learn how to write, produce, direct, film, edit and master a short film in preparation for festival entry. Students are split into crews of appropriate age and experience, with an individualized curriculum. We use professional equipment across the board – from filming to post production.

Notes

Most camps at our Winter Garden Studio run Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm.  Before and after care is available on request for an aditional charge.

Please contact us for further information.

Residency and on-location camps have specific times and rules – details listed in the camp descriptions.

For the safety, security and wellbeing of our students, Florida Film Academy operates a behavioural policy.
