Summer Camp for Film Makers
(St. Petersburg, FL) In July the Sunscreen Film Festival presents its fourth summer camp for youngsters. The two-week program will teach the kids how to concept, write, shoot and edit movies. The camp will end with a mini-festival to showcase the creative output of the campers.
The camp will meet at Studio620, 620 First Ave. South in St. Petersburg. It will run Mon. through Fri. from July 9 to July 20 from 9-5. The cost for the instruction and special equipment is $500.00.
“Youngsters bring passion and creativity to movie-making. With focused, professional training they can learn to direct that energy and make something really fun to watch. We love it. This camp has become a big part of our mission to promote film-making in our community,” said Tony Armer, executive director of the Sunscreen Film Festival.
In the first week of the camp, students will study the story structure that makes films compelling. They will use exercises to create scenes and try short vignettes to learn what works and what doesn't. They will also take an immersion course in cinematography with instructors demonstrating and sharing camera angles, lighting, and sound challenges that the students will face when making their movies.
The first three days of the second week will be for shooting film. The instructors will divide the class into teams. Each team will shoot its own original film. During the last two days students edit the movies and prepare them for exhibition.
Finally, on the last day of camp, the students will show their movies to family and friends at the camp film festival.
Sunscreen also provides each camper with a Filmmakers Pass to Sunscreen Film Festival 2013.
