Winter Film Camp: Intro to Film (Jan)



Campers learn DIY filmmaking techniques - shooting and editing on iPhones - that they can continue using at home with their friends and family. We encourage even our youngest campers to take what they learn and continue making their own films at home. Groups of 5-6 students brainstorm, create plot & characters, draw storyboards, and build sets. By the end of the workshop, they will have a completed film trailer for their movie. While filming a trailer and having fun the students explore professional techniques for drama, theatre, and the creative arts. Join us Friday, January 5th for a screening party with our friends and family. No prior film experience is required.

NOTE: We don't always stay at Art Klub & frequently take field trips outside including the St. Roch park (2 blocks away) playground and basketball courts. We require waivers and field trip permission slips for your child to leave camp. Students are given the option to stay behind at camp during that time to continue working on their projects.


Each session will include have an optional YouTube Camp workshop. With parents' permission, campers will learn how to make their own YouTube channel and upload videos to YouTube. Does your child want to make a YouTube channel to share the secret spy movie they've been working on? Do they want to create a 5 part series on their cat's favorite hiding spots? Sign up for YouTube camp!
