Video Production Camp

Education Unlimited - Video Production Camp

The Video Production Camp, campers produce, direct, light, shoot and edit like the experts as they complete exercises and projects culminating in making their own short movie. Students will learn to utilize titles, graphics, music, voice-over and live-action video while developing leadership, communication, project management, creative design and technical skills. Students work in a lab equipped with computers and PC-based editing systems so that they may learn-by-doing as they shoot and edit their own movies, and cameras are provided as well. A professional staff of instructors with over twenty years in film, television and video production guides students through a fun and exciting educational experience. Dynamic instructors, a full program of elective activities and the latest production technology provide a nurturing environment with a challenging edge.

Campers produce their first video on the first full-day and learn some of the basics of shooting quality footage. The second day presents a plunge into editing as campers produce a “Obstacle Video”; turning an everyday event into a premier short film. Students then begin to plan their movie project that they plan, shoot and edit in two days.  Students work together to plan the shooting schedule as they are all a part of each other’s movie project.  Throughout the week, the complexity of the projects grows along with the student’s skills and knowledge, developed through a fast-paced mix of instruction and exercises. Students analyze each others’ work and compare it with popular film and television as they are inspired by their own improved skills.

The week ends with a screening of the students’ movies for an audience of fellow-campers, family and friends. Each student takes home a DVD of their work and a Teen Filmmaker’s Handbook, containing additional tips, tricks and instruction to help them continue to develop their video production skills.   It’s a fast-paced intense class that forges long-lasting friendships!

An advanced 7-day program is also available.
