Teen Script Writing & Directing Camp

Creative Writing

This summer camp is for teens 13 – 17, who want to learn how write, shoot & edit a short film. In this hands on camp, taught by professional filmmakers, students will be paired in groups of two to three and will work collaboratively to produce a short film.

Students will write a three to five page script which they will then shoot, edit and score. The class is focused on how to shoot a film using a mobile phone so that students can keep creating films after the camp is over. No need for expensive equipment! Films will be presented the last day of class. Parents are welcome to attend the screening.
