Hands-on Filmmaking for Kids
The New York Film Academy’s 1-Week Online Filmmaking Level II Camp for Kids has been designed by our faculty of professional filmmakers to help guide returning students in the next steps towards creating their own script and filming a short teaser.
Program Name: 1-Week Filmmaking Camp for Kids II – Online
This online filmmaking II program is a great stepping stone for those interested in moving forward with their education and career as a filmmaker. Students will learn how to write a more complex script and how to record, edit and use a teaser for pre-production needs. Each filmmaker will leave ready for the two week level II class, or have a strong foundation to begin independently creating more advanced scripts and teasers from home.
Writing II – Focused on proper screenplay formatting and detail around characters, action and dialogue, students begin right away with getting their story ideas on the page.
Genre and Styles – A deeper dive into creative filmmaking styles and genres to hone in on each individual filmmaker’s taste and a plan for execution.
Directing II – Preparing filmmakers for how to conceptualize what they will need to make their short teaser as well as more preparation for directing actors.
The Sizzle Reel- A shooting and editing lab used to give students time in class to work on their teasers or director’s reel with the teacher’s guidance and support.
Intro to Producing – Fundamentals of producing. Focusing on producing your own work and what is needed to begin the pre-production process for a short indie film.
Campers will leave the program with:
- Experience in screenwriting software
- A completed short film script
- A sizzle reel
