Adventures in Filmmaking
Bring Your Story To Life
Discover how Hollywood shoots and edits movies, while mastering filmmaking and special effects techniques. You’ll express your own creative voice through storytelling when you develop a story idea with a production team, then turn that concept into a script and a shot-by-shot storyboard.
Master creative camera angles and unique shots, then edit your original footage in Final Cut Pro® to create an exciting and unique movie all your own. Screen your movie at the end of the week in a small film-festival style showcase and leave camp with the knowledge required to create a professional-looking movie.
