Summer Filmmaking Camp

Summer Filmmaking Camp

June 26 - August 25, 2017

Make a movie in a week, meet some new friends, have a lot of fun! SIFF's Filmmaking Summer Camps for youth ages 10 to 13 (9 to 12 for the Animation Camp) offer opportunities to students who are interested in experiencing the process of making both animated films and live-action short films. Taught by a professional media educator and experienced mentors, SIFF's week-long explorations of the art of filmmaking is the perfect way to make a lasting impact on summertime.

Each week-long camp will be held between 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM and will be limited to 20 students. All equipment is provided but students should expect to bring a sack lunch and their creativity for each day of the camp.

Camp Types

The four filmmaking camps each focus on a different topic for young filmmakers ages 10 to 13 and the content will be accessible for introductory students as well as generative for repeat campers. The first couple of days cover production basics framed within the context of our weekly theme. During tfinal two days, campers will create their own short films in small groups.

The animation camp in July affords nine through 12-year-old students the experience of working on their own stop-motion animation films. Whether using clay figures, paper cutouts, drawings, or LEGOs students will explore the limits of their imagination with storytelling that is both practical and surreal. Students will work together in groups and enjoy the challenge of animation and the ease of bringing it home to continue their creativity. All camps are taught by a professional film educator and four college-aged filmmaking mentors. Not only will students have a comprehensive experience of creating a film, but also enjoy the great open space of Seattle Center.

Scholarships

Limited full and partial scholarships are available for students from schools with over 50% free and reduced lunch. Email education@siff.net for more information.
