Our summer camps are like no other in the world. Whether you enroll in our acting, filmmaking, screenwriting, journalism, musical theatre, video game design or 3D animation camps you will work with students from all our camps to make a short film. This provides each student the opportunity to play a valuable role in the production of a film while receiving the hands-on instruction needed to perfect your craft.
Since 1996, thousands of teenagers and kids from all over the world have taken part in our intensive day and weekend camps taking place in New York City, Los Angeles, CA, Disney Studios in Orlando, Harvard University in Boston, Paris, Mumbai and Florence. We invite you to join us this summer.
Programs start this June. >> Request info now
