Frequently Asked Questions

My child wants to continue editing his/her film after camp. Do we get to keep the software?

Unfortunately, no. DMA obtains the rights to use the software on our workstations during camp weeks only. However, iMovie® comes pre-installed on most Macs. You may also purchase iMovie® from the Apple® App Store.

Will my student be working alone on his/her film?

Students work in production teams to make a movie, carrying out the jobs (like director, cameraperson, script supervisor) required on set. After filming, each student has the opportunity to edit their own version of the movie.
