Learn filmmaking this summer!
Our week-long Make a Movie themed camps are action packed and a lot of fun – students experience directing, filming acting and post production with easy to use – but very powerful – film tools.
Students ready to tackle the next level produce short films with large sensor DSLR cameras and independent sound equipment.
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.

No prior experience necessary and all equipment is provided.
