A filmmaking summer camp is being offered to high school students this summer by Fairfield University's Media Center, home of the University's undergraduate New Media Film, Television and Radio program. Topics covered include film language and technique, screen writing, camera operation, lighting elements, audio recording, directing, producing, and digital editing. The camp will take place within the Media Center facilities with state of the art, high definition equipment and advanced postproduction hardware and software.
Students will receive intensive individual instruction throughout the week, leading to production and screening of their own short digital films. They will create their own films while learning the processes of pre-production, production and post-production of filmmaking.
Each student film will be screened before an audience of fellow-campers, family and friends at the camp's film festival, when awards will be given for best film, directing, cinematography, writing and editing. Each student takes home a DVD copy of their work and a packet for film festival submission.
The total cost of our day camp is $1200. This includes meals.
This camp is in compliance with the regulations of the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health and is licensed by the Board of Health.
