Summer 2015 TPP



Teen Short Film BootCAMPs

Your future as a filmmaker starts here! This week long course will provide teens with the unique opportunity to produce short narrative films under the guidance of professional filmmakers. In one short week, students in our Teen Short Film BootCAMP will come up with a story, write a script, scout locations, work with professional actors, direct, produce, and film their own short film. All students will gain experience working with professional filmmaking equipment (DSLR cameras, microphones, audio recorders, and more) and editing their film on Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro.

The Short Film BootCAMPs will wrap up with a public screening at the Digital Gym Cinema to showcase their work for family and friends. Students will receive a DVD copy of all their projects completed during the week. This is sure to be an experience to remember! (ages 14-18)
