Spring Break Movie Camp

Past workshop, not currently available

One Hit Die (2013) Dir. Spencer Estabrooks

This five-day camp introduces youth ages 13-17 to the filmmaking process. Participants will learn the basics of taking a movie from script to screen in intensive, hands-on, collaborative workshops. This excellent introduction to the art of film production will see participants write, direct, shoot, and edit a film.

Upon completion, their film will be premiered at a gala screening at the CSIF, where participants and the public are invited to attend.
