This two-week intensive filmmaking program is great for young filmmakers hoping to learn new techniques and build upon a solid foundation. The program provides a practical foundation for filmmaking skills including lighting, camera composition, and editing.  Students will take on full responsibility for their projects as they work in small collaborative settings to develop the script, storyboards, and then finally shoot the project. Also, learn about the various ways to distribute and promote their work both online and through various film festivals. At the end of the two weeks, students will take home a DVD copy of their group film completed during the session.
