Learn How To Make A Short Film at NYFA
In NYFA’s six-week film camp for teens, students aged 14-17 study the art and craft of filmmaking. Through hands-on projects and coursework, students quickly learn how to direct, write, edit, and produce their own short films.
Camp Name: 6-Week Summer Film Camp for Teens
This intensive film summer camp offers aspiring visual storytellers the opportunity to learn how to make a short film. Using professional-grade HDSLR cameras, professional lighting, and sound equipment, students create original video content, learning fundamental skills and techniques. Throughout the course, students study and practice a range of topics such as basic screenwriting structure, and how to edit and manage post-production, as well as how to direct actors. The final film that each student creates during the camp also incorporates dialogue using sync-sound. The projects that students create receive feedback and guidance from faculty, as well as their peers.
We recommend that students bring a 1TB – 2TB HD hard drive to store their work and project files. When the camp concludes, students are invited to show their work at a screening for their family and friends and are welcome to keep a digital copy of their work.
