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 film making instruction workshops, and a view a mini-screening by 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 each other's unique abilities through peer encouragement.

-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 did you hear about Fierce Flix Camp?
Mechanical Eye Microcinema's mailing list/website/facebook
Fierce Flix summer camp is a volunteer-operated, non-profit organization powered by fundraisers and donations from our community.
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 film making experience!
Our suggested tuition for the week-long camp is $200 per camper, but we are proud to offer full and partial sponsorships. Registration is strictly first-come, first-serve and your family’s ability to pay will not affect your child’s chance of acceptance to camp. If you are able to pay any amount over the suggested fee, it will go towards sponsoring other campers.
Fierce Flix asks that tuition be paid by May 24, 2020 to ensure your camper has a spot. Tuition payments can be made via cash (in person at an upcoming event), check (made out to Mechanical Eye Microcinema, with your camper's name on the check, in person or mailed to PO Box 6613 Asheville, NC 28816), or PayPal (to
