Lights, Camera, Action! (Grades 7-10)

Budding film artists are going to want to check out this camp which introduces the basic concepts of film making and video production. Students will take on the roles of writer, camera operator, storyboard artist, director, actor, editor and special effects artist. Roles may be duplicated and rotated so that all students gain experience. Your team will complete a short film to be premiered on the last day of camp. So, let’s get in the director’s chair and break out the cameras to create a blockbuster this summer.

Note to Parents – Videos produced during this class will be uploaded to an unlisted YouTube link with comments disabled. It will not show up in search results and will only be visible to those who have the direct link. Content may be removed starting 30 days after publication. Students who wish to keep a copy of the content they create should bring a large flash drive (32GB or larger). Students may bring their own cameras, phones, tablets or other digital video devices if desired.
