ART26201 to again offer Young Filmmakers Camp in June

This summer, ART26201 will offer the 4th Annual ART26201 Young Filmmakers Camp at LASCAUX Micro-Theater in Buckhannon from June 10-14.

The five-day workshop will teach students the fundamentals of filmmaking and is designed to engage the students in creative thinking and applying of soft-skills in order to produce an original film.

Students will receive hands-on experience in acting, directing, filming, editing, and writing a narrative film. Students will experience what it is like to be on a film crew and to work collaboratively.

By the end of the week, the students will not only complete a shot-by shot remake of a famous Hollywood film scene, but they will also create a short film (2-5 mins) based on one of the scripts developed at the camp that week.

Snacks and drinks will be provided, however, students will be asked to bring a lunch daily. All classes will be held at Lascaux Micro-Theater. At the end of camp, we host a premiere for all completed work; students, parents, and friends are invited to see participants on the big screen. Participants from previous camps are encouraged to participate again this year in the intermediate or advanced program.

This year, the camp will be separated into three sections: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Beginner Camp is for students who are attending the camp for the first time. Intermediate Camp will require previous film camp attendance. Students wishing to participate in the Advanced Camp program will need to have a completed 2-5 page script.

Parents of students can request specific group placement depending on their child’s skill level.

This year, ART26201 is adding a second full-time teacher, Andrew Carroll, to teach film equipment and technology, and lead the Advanced Camp program.

BEGINNERS CAMP:
Time: 9 a.m. – Noon Daily
Age: 9-12(+-)
Fee: $75

INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED CAMP:
Time: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Daily
Age: 12+
