Teen campers will bring their stories to life and see them on the big screen! This two week long intensive course is designed to guide young people in thinking visually and working together as they learn the basic techniques of digital filmmaking (including video cameras, lighting, and sound). Students work in small groups, developing ideas and learning the basic communication skills necessary to function as a filmmaking team. Each group film will be edited using professional editing software. The course concludes with a screening of all finished projects in the Film Forum's cinema.

Recommended for ages 11-14
Taking a hands-on, in-depth approach, students will spend time learning all aspects of filmmaking, from story and concept to finished product. The two-week class will begin by focusing on characters and plot, storyboarding and planning before the shoot. Students will then use professional video cameras, microphones and lighting kits to create their films. Teams will come up with multiple pieces, perfecting their craft by trying out different roles and ideas. Students can choose the method and style of filmmaking, even focusing on different variations of an idea. Their final film will be shot, edited and polished in time for a screening in the Film Forum's theater on the last day of class.
