Small Group Online
This fall, we are offering group filmmaking over 2 weekends – FREE to families who cannot afford the $100 tuition or who want to try our online camp for the first time.
Our summer 2020 online program was similar to the very successful day program that we have been offering since 2013. We offered 3-hour classes over 5 days vs our 7 hours per day boot camps, and this turned out to be a great model for moving forward.
Participants were asked to engage their creativity off-line, classes were live and interactive, and films were made! The films were shot by participants in their homes, neighbourhoods and personal environments using cameras, phones and iPads. Depending on the script, family members were asked to join the fun!
- Day 1: Review Screenplay Writing; Agree on Script, Write Script, Storyboard Scenes
- Day 2: Finalize Script; Assign Shots, Rehearse Script

- Day 4: Finish Editing as well as Colour and Sound Editing; Add Music
