Direct At-Camp Roles
Please pay attention to the required hours/days of each role before committing!
Producers are the heart of Fierce Flix. In this position, you will facilitate cooperation among a small group of campers in creating a music video. Producers will help campers work together, name their team, develop their video, and may help out with technical instruction if needed. Because this position is critical to the success of the campers, you must be available all day for the full week of camp. Filmmaking experience is a huge bonus, but not required. Most importantly, you must love working with kids and helping to empower them through creativity. The Producer must be able to facilitate the creative process among the team members and supply endless encouragement throughout the entire week of camp.
Filmmaking instructors are needed to teach campers how to make a film! You will need to be able to assist and encourage students of all ages and experience levels – some campers have been making videos for years, and some have never used a camera before. Filmmaking instruction takes place in two sessions, a morning session from 9:30-11:00 and an afternoon session from 2:00-3:30. Filmmaking instructors may attend either a morning or afternoon session (or both) and may do one or many sessions throughout the week of camp. Each day, campers will learn different aspects of production, so no two days will be the same. We are interested in instructors for all sorts of topics, including storyboarding, composition, camera operation, lighting, directing, editing, camera stabilization, animation, motion graphics, and more!
Workshop instructors will teach skill-specific workshops to campers. Workshops are curated by the Fierce Flix board of directors. Instructors must be available for both morning (11am-12pm) and afternoon (1pm-2pm) sessions during the day of their workshop.
Members of the posi-patrol team work together to ensure that all camp interactions remain positive! This will include mediating and mentoring camper interactions, settling disputes, and fostering encouragement among all participants at camp! Counseling and mediating experience is preferred, but not required. For this position, you must be able to attend at least one 4 hour shift at camp, either 8:30-12:30 or 12:30-4:30.
Fierce Flix supplies campers and volunteers with lunch and snacks all week long. This requires a lot of food preparation, set-up, and clean-up. Furthermore, craft services volunteers will need to keep track of campers' dietary restrictions to ensure that everyone stays healthy and ready to make films! In addition to handling lunch and snacks, craft services will be asked to assist with set-up, clean-up, and management of arts and crafts supplies. We ask that the craft services volunteers attend at least one 4-hour shift at camp, but they will be most needed from 11:30-12:30 for lunch.
Camp can be a big experience for our campers, so we like to have “settling in” assemblies in the morning, and “settling out” assemblies in the afternoon. Fierce Flix needs energetic volunteers to help lead these assemblies. Activities may include dancing, ice-breaker activities, screaming out nerves and insecurities, and doing relaxing stretches. We ask that assembly leaders commit to as many mornings (8:00-9:30) and afternoons (2:30-4:00) as possible.
