Video Production Camp
The Video Production Camp, campers produce, direct, light, shoot and edit like the experts as they complete exercises and projects culminating in making their own short movie. Students will learn to utilize titles, graphics, music, voice-over and live-action video while developing leadership, communication, project management, creative design and technical skills. Students work in a lab equipped with computers and PC-based editing systems so that they may learn-by-doing as they shoot and edit their own movies, and cameras are provided as well. A professional staff of instructors with over twenty years in film, television and video production guides students through a fun and exciting educational experience. Campers produce their first video on the first full-day and learn some of the basics of shooting quality footage.
Students then begin to plan their movie project that they plan, shoot and edit in two days. Students work together to plan the shooting schedule as they are all a part of each other’s movie project. Throughout the week, the complexity of the projects grows along with the student’s skills and knowledge, developed through a fast-paced mix of instruction and exercises. Students analyze each others’ work and compare it with popular film and television as they are inspired by their own improved skills. The week ends with a screening of the students’ movies for an audience of fellow-campers, family and friends.
Each student takes home a DVD of their work and a Teen Filmmaker’s Handbook, containing additional tips, tricks and instruction to help them continue to develop their video production skills. We strive to provide industry-leading instruction to all of our students and hold all staff to the highest possible standards.
