Do YOU want to be in film? If so, Filmmaking Camp is for you!  Welcome to the exciting world of Filmmaking where the ultimate goal of the camp is to teach campers how to complete a film project from start to finish.  Campers gain hands-on experience in many aspects of the Filmmaking process as they ideate and create a script for a short film, develop characters, rehearse lines, shoot footage, edit film using OpenShot™ Video Editor, add special effects as desired, re-shoot if needed, and produce a final copy of their work!

Filmmaking Camp is a combination of scripting, acting, directing, filming, editing, and creating special effects!  When starting out in film, whether in front of the camera or behind the scenes, it is always important to understand and appreciate all aspects of production.  At Filmmaking Camp, campers have the chance to experience every part of the process!

Campers are placed in production groups and create at least one film project each week!

We welcome campers who are beginners, intermediates, and advanced in the world of filmmaking. Film camp can be a place to express yourself, work on creative writing skills, improve your acting skills, become more comfortable with public speaking, learn how to produce a film, work together as a team, and accomplish a project you can be proud of!

Please note, campers who do not want to be in the actual film can still attend camp and assist in pre-production, production, and post-production.

*If time allows, campers may also create commercials and/or a blooper reel!

Join us for a totally unique and fun summer experience where campers are super-creative, challenged, and produce a final product they can be proud of and watch for years to come.  

A Camp Film Festival and Film Screening takes place on Fridays at 2:45pm!  

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt & CD with a final copy of their film projects!
