Youth Media & Tech Camps

In these fun, educational and hands-on camps, youth ages 6-12 learn camerawork, editing, stop motion, green screen and more!

Youth flex their technology and creativity muscles by making their own short films! Through project-based learning, campers dive into the fundamentals of pre-production, production, and post-production, such as storyboarding, camerawork, editing, sound design, stop motion, and green screen! 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 at Digital Gym Cinema!

Thank you for a fantastic summer!
