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 on-line camp for the first time.
Our summer 2020 on-line program was similar to our 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 movies were made! The films were shot by the participants in their homes, neighbourhoods and personal environments using cameras, phones and iPads. Depending upon the script, family members were asked to join in the fun!
