Learn How To Make A Short Film at NYFA
Students who have completed the part-time twelve-weekend or full-time three-week, four-week, or six-week level one filmmaking camps are eligible to attend our 6-Week Filmmaking II Camp. During this hands-on film camp, students aged 14-17 learn how to make a short film using a professional-grade HD camera, as well as a large grip and sound package.
Camp Name: 6-Week Filmmaking II Camp for Teens
Prerequisite: 12-Weekend, 3, 4, or 6-Week Filmmaking Camp
Before our level-two film summer camp begins, each student submits a short script of three to six pages to direct. This is a necessary requirement, as the development of the film begins during week one, and campers must have a project ready to go. Through the next few weeks, students make a short film of six to eight minutes, and build upon their existing skills. Students learn additional techniques in camera work, lighting, directing, digital editing, and sound design with different HDSLR cameras as well as a larger grip and sound package.
In order to store their project files and work, we recommend that students bring a 1TB – 2TB HD hard drive. Students who complete the camp are invited to screen their projects for family and friends at a special NYFA screening, and may keep a digital copy of their projects.
