SLOIFF Youth Filmmaking Camps – register now

6826415201_f6e480daee_bSummer is almost here, which means it’s time to sign up your kids and grand kids for some fun activities. Our 6th Annual Summer Filmmaking Camps offer a stimulating and creative experience, while teaching young people some basic and advanced techniques to help them make great short films.

In the Film Production workshop, they each have the opportunity to pitch an idea, be part Green screen picof a casting team, be an actor, director, cinematographer, sound person, props person, and part of the editing team. On the final day of the workshop, they’ll have the chance to show off their finished film and be part of a Q&A.

In the Animation workshop, groups of three will work on a wide variety of claymation and stop animation projects, while learning more about how Hollywood animated movies are made. On the final day of the workshop, they’ll share their finished short films and participate in a Q&A to discuss the challenges and triumphs they’ve experienced.

IMG_9269The workshops are set up to accommodate all-day campers too! Kids can do one workshop in the morning and the other in the afternoon, with a one-hour lunch break, so let us know if this works for you. (There will be a small additional charge if you want them to stay with SLOIFF counselors for the lunch break.)

We are happy to have professional filmmakers and credentialed teachers, Alan Fraser and Jody Nelson back again to teach this summer. Patiently guiding their youthful creativity, Alan and Jody are always amazed at the ingenuity and imagination that emerges in these workshops. Their backgrounds and experience making films and working with kids make them the perfect instructors for this exciting program.
And we have some really awesome assistants too!
