Description

Explore a different aspect of filmmaking and create something new each day. This series of hands-on workshops takes advantage of the screening room, sound stage, recording studio, animation studio, and so much more!

Throughout each session and from year to year, campers will encounter new projects at deeper levels.
Projects may include:
• digital storytelling, short films, scriptwriting, directing, documentary
• music recording, songwriting, music video, film scoring
• video game design, multimedia installation, interactive media
• 2-D and 3-D stop-motion animation, 3-D computer animation

Each session’s mix of activities will vary, but all include demonstrations, creative collaboration, and opportunities for hands-on experiences using all the resources of our state-of-the-art facility. Small groups (maximum: 10) are led by our renowned faculty and special guest instructors, assisted by trained counselors. Specialists include Foley artists, actors, production designers, songwriters, and more! We maintain a ratio of 1 adult to every 5 campers.
