Indie Filmmaking Camp with Amy Frear

Ages 11-14

Video is now giving people all over the world the ability to leverage their voices more than ever. In this two week session, campers will have the chance to bring their stories to life using the video production tools we have at our fingertips (and often carry with us in our pockets). They'll learn from professional filmmakers as they collaborate to write scripts, design costumes and sets, act, direct, and then finally edit and share their work. We'll have the opportunity to visit the Museum of the Moving Image and live film sets. By the end of camp, we will have a batch of short films that we have made together to screen at our own Alamander Film Festival.
