Summer Filmmaking Camp: Mysteries

Students (aged 9-12) will explore the creativity of filmmaking by writing mystery shorts and using other digital tools to expand their storytelling.

July 30 - August 3, 2018

Make a short film in just five days! It will be fast paced, but in small groups 9-12 year-old students will explore creating compelling mysteries while learning the basics of working together as a movie crew, writing scripts, directing actors, using accessible filmmaking technology, and digital editing. At the end of the week, your short film will be "in the can" and we will celebrate with a family screening in the SIFF Film Center Theater. Finished films will be uploaded to a group video link for parents to download and share the final products.
