Digital Filmmaking - Session 1

June 26-July 14



Ages 14-19

*No class during the July 4th holiday

Lights, camera, action!  Work on set of your own short film with hands-on training in directing, creative storytelling, and equipment usage.  

Students will practice team work and collaboration by working in small groups to create, develop, shoot and edit their own short films.  In partnership with the UCI DigiFilm program, students will have access to professional grade equipment and computer software, and learn the ins and outs of the professional video production world.  The Academy will end in a final screening of all the student films (more details to be shared).  Supplies included in registration cost.

Please note that the deadline to register for the Overnight option is May 22, 2017.  The Overnight option is available based on enrollment.  For more information, visit our Overnights page.
