There’s room for everyone, from shy kids who like to write or plan or work behind a camera, to budding superstars who like to dance and show off, to kids who just like to help out and have fun learning some of the basics of filmmaking. Campers will learn a little about lights and cameras, a little about movie directing & producing… and a lot about how to work as a team.
