Sample Film Camp Schedule. No experience is required, and we have the equipment!

Participants work in ‘production teams’ of 4-6 people to make a film each week. Classes include screenplay writing, pre-production, film editing, acting, cinematography, set design and more.  Children will learn in a hands-on, fast-pace, facilitated learning environment with tight deadlines – mentors and coaches help to make the experience memorable and fun. Thanks to the community-at-large, we can also offer walking tours and location visits to help boost creativity in filmmaking.

An extra special thanks Petretta Construction for our space and to Libro Credit Union for a $75,000 grant over 2015 and 2016 for equipment.  As a result, we have been able to purchase new DRSL cameras, iMACs, Final Cut Pro X, wall screens, projectors, tripods and more.

Thanks also to Amanda Gellman, CEO of MANAN Strategy / MANAN Media, who founded the camp and is a Chair of the Windsor Centre for Film, Digital Media & the Creative Arts. Her company is a major sponsor and a long-term partner.  In this capacity, Amanda serves as the Producer of Film Camp for Kids & Youth.
