Attention Young Filmmakers!

Join us for a two-week filmmaking intensive for High School students ages 14–18Monday–Thursday: 10 AM–4 PM, July 10th–13th & 17th–20th.

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, and work with professional equipment using standard editing practices to create a polished product. 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 world premiere screening of the film at The Colonial Theatre where students will host an onstage Q&A on Sunday, July 23rd.
