Attention Young Filmmakers!

Join us for a two-week filmmaking intensive for High School students ages 14–18

The Colonial Theatre is proud to offer a two-week filmmaking intensive White Mountain Cinema Camp: Script to Screen Monday–Friday from 10 AM–4 PM, August 1st–5th and 8th–12th. High School students ages 14–18 will work with industry professionals to learn and experience the cinematic process from script to screen. Students will learn how to build a story, use tools in pre-production, work with professional equipment and standard editing practices to create a polished product. Students will work alongside the instructors as a production crew as seen on sets of a professional film. During their time at the camp, the students will create a group short film and learn new skills to create their own films beyond the classroom. The final films will be premiered in a public showcase at The Colonial Theatre where students will host a Q&A on Sunday, Aug. 14.

Class size is limited to 15 students on a first-come, first-served basis and an enrollment fee of $25 is required. (This fee covers the cost of the camp including lunches.)
