Camp Name: 2-Day Holiday Filmmaking Camp for Teens

During NYFA’s 2-Day Holiday Filmmaking Workshop, students explore camera, lighting, sound, and post-production by working collaboratively on exercises in high definition digital video. Students use the skills taught in class to create short, filmed scenes that will be celebrated at a screening on the conclusion of the second day. Students also rotate through crew positions such as director, cinematographer, assistant cameraperson and actor.

The 2-Day Holiday Filmmaking Workshop is a fun and fast-paced experience, excellent for students who want a hands-on introduction to the basic principles of filmmaking.
