1-Week Kids Film Camp II

Learn How to Make a Movie as a Kid

During NYFA’s level two kids film camp, students who have completed a prerequisite program may return to advance their filmmaking skills. This hands-on, one-week camp gives students aged 10-13 the opportunity to complete their own film project and study additional filmmaking disciplines, including cinematography, screenwriting, and directing.

Program Description

1-Week Filmmaking Camp for Kids II

Prerequisite: 1 or 2-Week Filmmaking Camp I for Kids

In this exciting and fun film program, students develop, pre-produce, and create their own original short films using state-of-the-art cameras and equipment. Classes focus on genre and style in digital cinematography, screenwriting, editing practice and aesthetics, and directing for cinema. Students also learn crucial crew roles and study set and costume design, locations, shot choices, and coverage. The finished product is a short film of up to five minutes.

At the end of the camp, a special presentation features content created during the program, and family and friends are welcome to attend. Students also receive a USB drive from NYFA with a digital copy of their work. During the program, students need to provide their own lunch.
