The Art of Making a Film
Whether you are an aspiring filmmaker or actor, writer or director, CampFilm! is perfect for you!
Campers will be divided into filmmaking teams according to age. Each team will create, write, act and edit a short film with members assigned various jobs such as: Producer, Director, Head Writer, Cinemetographer, Set Director, Editor etc. While team members may be a division head, campers rotate through jobs as assistants to learn the scope of various positions.
With Atlanta now called Hollywood of the South, so many jobs in the field of entertainment are now available. This camp explores just some of the avenues in this fascinating field that students can go into.
Here are just some of the Positions/Fields Students will explore “become” as part of CampFILM!
PRODUCER: Responsible for the financing of the film, and decisions on how money is spent---Each Producer and team will be given a set amount of money they can spend on various aspects of making their film: filming equipment, editing bay time, supplies, various sets created set up in the classrooms, extra personnel like camera men etc.
HEADWRITER/WRITING TEAM: The script is the backbone of any film. Students will learn the process of taking a script from conception to outlining the plot to writing dialogue. Character development, conflict, relationship between characters and overall theme will be explored.
DIRECTOR: The director is the “visionary” of the film creating the mood, directing the actors and bringing the script to life. In charge of bringing all the elements together to create a cohesive and compelling story, the director is a vital component in any film.
EDITOR: It is the editing process that gives the footage actual structure and tells the story. An editor has much power in manipulating what the audience sees and feels by how he pieces together the footage. Students will learn basic editing concepts and edit the movie into the final product using iMovie. Editing techniques and styles will also be explored.
These are just some of the positions campers will explore and take part in the creation of their short films. Upon completion of their short film, campers will host a Premiere Party where parents and friends are invited to the screening. Campers will take part in a Q&A session after each screening modeling after many prominent film festivals.
This camp is limited to only 16 actors!
