Dates and Location- Camp will take place from June 24-28, 2019 (Monday to Friday.)- All participants in the camp will present their work at a public screening Friday after camp.- Camp location: Rainbow Community School, 574 Haywood Road, Asheville.
What Do Campers Learn At Camp?Participants will form teams, storyboard, direct, shoot, and edit an original music video for a local band, and screen their videos in a showcase at the end of the week.
Each day, campers will film with their film team, attend filmmaking instruction workshops, and a view a mini-screening by female filmmakers, with a Q&A session after the films.
Throughout the week, campers are urged to work together as a team, build confidence in each other, and foster one another's unique abilities through peer encouragement.
Campers will learn:-to identify and apply the elements of a well-crafted image, from framing to color to composition-to operate film equipment-the various roles on a film crew and terminology of the film experience-that you can make mistakes in a supportive, low threat environment, and mistakes can provide valuable learning opportunities-how to learn to accept feedback (and give critical feedback to others)
Does My Camper Need To Bring Equipment To Camp?No, all equipment will be provided by the camp. No experience or equipment necessary!
These contributions help us acquire the resources we need to enrich our camp and provide campers with supplies, equipment, a place to film, and a hands-on, participatory and supportive filmmaking experience!
