Video footage is being created at an ever expanding rate these days but most of it just gets left on the device in raw form. In this camp we will discover ways to use that raw footage to make it more interesting and compelling. This is a necessary step for those who want to post their projects to sites like YouTube in search of an audience. Students will learn about the basic filmmaking process from pre to post-production. They will then work with computer based video editing software to cut, splice and add effects to achieve their desired impact. On the final day students will present their video on our large screen projector. Student should bring a device capable of shooting video and understand how to move that raw footage to a PC computer. This is a good companion to the Lights, Camera, Action! camp but neither is a prerequisite for the other.

- If you find a class full, please register on the wait-list so that we can contact if you if space becomes available. We do our best to accommodate wait-listed students, who will be given priority if we are able to add another section of the class. We will then be in touch to confirm our ability to register your child.
- If any class has not met the minimum of three students required for the class to run by one week prior to the start date, we may cancel the class to free up the instructor and class space for other classes which may have waiting lists. Should this need to happen, we will inform affected families immediately.
