BUCKHANNON — ART 26201 will host the sixth annual ART26201 Young Filmmakers Camp, open to students 12 and up, from July 26-30, 2021, at LASCAUX Micro-Theater in Buckhannon, West Virginia.
The five-day workshop will guide students through writing, shooting, and editing a short film. All students will learn the essentials of sharing a compelling story, screenwriting, videography, and editing while working in a collaborative environment. Additionally, students will be introduced to the vocabulary of filmmaking so that they can communicate about their work professionally.
At the end of the week, we will hold a screening of student-produced films so students can celebrate their accomplishments with their friends and families.
Andrew Carroll, Bryce O’Loughlin, Jon Benjamin, and Jess Johnson will lead the camp instruction.
Please contact info@ART26201.com to reserve your student’s seat, and be sure to include your student’s T-shirt size when signing up for camp! Snacks and drinks will be provided; however, students will be asked to bring a lunch daily.
