Filmmaking

TIC’s budding film-makers use high definition cameras and industry standard software (Final Cut Pro X) to edit in order to create short films (8-10 minutes) and bring their imaginations to life.

Beginning with the creation of a “production company”, campers work with a small group to brainstorm and create a story with a script and storyboards. Using HD cameras and tripods, campers will study different types of camera shots. All campers take turns directing, acting, filming, and editing their original short films. Green screens can also be used for some magical special effects.

Collaboration is vital to the creation of these complex group projects. Teamwork, negotiation, and creativity are skills emphasized and practiced in order for groups to produce amazing camper films.

  • Requirements: Ability to work as a team. Film campers work in groups of 4-6. Rising third graders.
  • Level: Beg-Advanced (Rising third grade Juniors and Seniors)
  • Take home: Films available on website for downloading.
