Teen Filmmaker Boot Camps

This week-long crash-course provides teens with training and mentorship to bring an original film idea from script to screen!


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
During week-long Teen Filmmaker Boot Camps, students get a crash-course in operating the camera, recording sound, screenwriting, creating storyboards and editing! Rooted in project-based learning, the Teen Filmmaker Boot Camps curriculum centers on pre-production, production, and post-production techniques, empowering participants to bring their filmmaking and storytelling skills to the next level. Campers work closely with local media arts professionals to bring an original film idea from script to screen, culminating in an end-of-program showcase for family and friends!
