Thanksgiving Filmmaking Camp

Thanksgiving Filmmaking Camp

November 20 - 22, 2017

Make a short film in your three days out of school before Thanksgiving Break! 9- through 12-year-old students will learn the basics of working together as a movie crew, writing scripts, directing actors, using accessible filmmaking technology, and digital editing in this fast-paced camp. 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.

The Thanksgiving Filmmaking Camp is taught by a professional film educator and four high school / college filmmaking mentors. Not only will students have a comprehensive experience of creating a film, but also the great open doors of the Seattle Center grass to have some fun when they need a break. All equipment is provided but students should expect to bring a morning snack, a sack lunch, and their creativity for each day of the camp. Please email SIFF Education if you have any questions about this camp.
