Small Group Filmmaking Classes

Our summer 2020 on-line program will be similar to our very successful day program that we have been offering since 2013. However, with 3 hour classes vs our 7 hours per day boot camps, participants will be asked to engage their creativity off-line. Because of the nature of virtual teaching, Instructors will need to do more of the editing than in our day camps. The films will also be shot by the participants in their homes, neighbourhoods and personal environments using cameras, phones and iPads. Depending upon the script, family members may be asked to join in the fun! Parents (or older students) will need to be able to email video footage to the camp on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, using the instructions provided.

We are looking at hosting small day camps later in the summer.
