Young Filmmakers Camp

From concept to final cut, young filmmakers will experience each step of the creative process and experiment with new technologies.

July 30 – August 5, 2017

Registration coming soon

Come make movies at Icicle Creek and learn from the pros!

In just one week, students ages 12-18 will complete their own documentary film, working with GoPros, drones, boom mics and lights.  Film campers are in for a fun and exciting hands-on introduction to the media arts in a beautiful natural setting. Start the week filming around the natural beauty of the Icicle Creek Campus, followed by two days of editing and post production. From concept to final cut, young filmmakers will experience each step of the creative process and experiment with new technologies. Campers will learn how to conduct a meaningful interview, handle a camera, set up a shot, record audio, and even shoot aerials from a drone. And once the footage is all gathered, of course, it all has to be organized and edited. By the end of the week, campers will have planned, shot and edited their own movie and we’ll cap it all off with a family screening complete with popcorn!
