A story is worth a thousand takes. In this virtual camp, story will call the shots on all projects. Each day, students will produce one short film exploring a variety of storytelling methods including an auto-biographical intro video, scripted narrative short films, stop motion animations, and a short documentary. Students will implement all three stages of the film production process every day to produce their mini-movies. Young filmmakers in this camp will play all of the roles throughout the process including scriptwriter, storyboard artist, cinematographer, director, actor, and editor. This camp is perfect for the creator that likes to do it all!
