Students, between the ages of 9 - 12 years old, will learn techniques to create a documentary from behind the camera. At the end of camp, they will have created their own documentary, which will be featured at a red carpet premiere at a prestigious theatre. Film summer camp will be a great experience with a related field trip and special industry guests.
