As a core component of NVFF’s year-round Education & Outreach Programs, this dynamic camp arms students with the tools and instruction to become more confident and proficient storytellers and filmmakers. At the writing workshop, students will learn to write and format a narrative script, and teachers will select scripts for the students to produce. Once scripts are completed during the workshop, the additional month before camp will provide enough timing for script refinements, cast selection, and a comprehensive filming schedule for production. At camp, students will learn about all aspects of the filmmaking process, and, working in teams, take on roles such as Director, Producer, Lighting and Camera Operators, Actor, and Editor during the week of production. Each group will complete a fully developed short film to show to their friends, family, and community.
