Camp Write, Shoot, Act!!!

DATES July 25th-28th
TIME 9 AM-5 PM**
AGES 10+

**Times during filming days will be TBA

As an actor in the film and television industry, so often we wait, get an audition, submit the audition, see if we hear back, don’t hear anything at all, and wait for the next audition to come in with the hopes of it becoming a booking. But what if instead of waiting during that time, you were creating?
In Camp Write, Shoot, Act!!!, Campers will act in and film an original sceneof their own creation! During the first two days, campers will take a variety of film-centric classes and break up into teams of 2-3 to write their scene. The last two days of Camp will be dedicated to rehearsals and filming their personal scene with our professional crew at a local studioand directed by one of our staff. When students are not acting, they will be assisting in other departments ranging from Art, Sound, Script Supervising, and more.

Our staff will then edit everyone’s scenes which will premiere in the late Fall. Afterwards, students may use their scenes for their own personal use (acting demo reel, writing portfolio, etc.)Classes Include: Mechanics of Screenwriting and the Importance of StoryHow To Make a Short FilmThe Art of the PitchCreating a Story Board Rehearsing, Hitting the Marks and Overall BlockingSet Protocol and more!We look forward to seeing what you create!
