Future Filmmakers Camp
Ages 9 - 13


Schedule a virtual or in-person school tour!

Start your journey on filmmaking this summer! The Future Filmmakers Camp aims to give campers an insight into how videos are made, the tools video people use to tell a story, and give each camper a fun, hands-on experience with shooting and editing.

Campers can:
  • send the Monkey King flying through the school;
  • write your name on a car or a wall (non-destructive of course!);
  • give someone a really large nose using just the camera;
  • change the color of a flower or your fingernails;
  • shoot a brief dramatic scene; and
  • 5-second cinema (can you have a beginning, middle, and end all in 5 seconds?) 

The camp intends to explore the power of PROFESSIONAL EDITING and COMPOSITING SOFTWARE. We will be using DaVinci Resolve software v17, which many professionals use in Hollywood.

The camp will also provide handycams for the campers to use to video record projects. We intend to pique curiosity and creativity in the video making and video editing processes. The camp size is limited to EIGHT students MAXIMUM.

Join us this summer at the HSArts Future Filmmakers Camp!
