Students Plan, Direct, Produce, Record, & Star In Their Own Short Film!
Our Stevens Summer Film Camp lets students learn how to produce, act, and star on camera while building self-confidence and a sense of team achievement putting together their own short film. Having fun as creators is fundamental in our production classes. We teach filmmaking – in a fun, accessible way – as students work together on screen and behind-the-scenes.
Our Stevens Cooperative School Summer Film Camp sessions are specially designed to give students the opportunity to learn how movie making works. We start by collaboratively planning with small steps before moving on to progressively more challenging choices. Week-by-week we dive into production and learn basic production concepts including acting on camera, lights, sound, visual storytelling, audition, acting, and production as students work together to rotate through crew assignments and make their production.
Our classes are customized for each student, emphasizing fun for our young students as they practice both on camera and behind the scenes and more in-depth lessons for older or more experienced kids. Sessions wrap up with a neighborhood screening of their their short film to share with family, friends, and community.
