Tate had digital filmmaking at UC Berkeley and he loved it. Tate was given the nickname “Tate Spielberg” in Anthony’s class. Tate spoke very highly of Anthony. I think he gave the kids a lot of autonomy. It was a cohesive group where nobody knew each other at first and they all got along great. We were very excited to find such a specialized camp and it really sparked a lot of interest for our son, who became quite dominant in his group in the directing of the short film they made called “Trapped”. Each student did their own editing on group created footage and proceeded to create a pro looking trailer and a 3 minute film. Tate has since created Trapped 2, Trapped 3, and Trapped 4 – engaging as many of his friends and relatives as are willing to be actors under his direction. He even recently attended an open house at E’xpressions College in Emeryville. Talk about igniting passion! He was the youngest person on the tour. He was captivated.
