A world inspired by film.

Facets Kids Film Camp 2017

Facets Kids Film Camp

The critically-acclaimed Facets Kids Film Camp summer enrichment program introduces kids ages 7–14 to the techniques, language and process of filmmaking. Film educators, filmmakers, and respected critics provide guidance in what it takes to understand, create and analyze film.

Through screenings, discussions, and creative hands-on exercises that include opinion writing, acting, story development and making a movie, campers learn:

  • Film appreciation, film vocabulary, and early film history.
  • Basic film production techniques (story, story development, types of shots, composition, screenwriting, storyboarding, acting, casting, lighting, sound, editing, directing, and production safety and communication).
  • Written and verbal critique and review.

At the end of each camp, the kid's final films are celebrated in a small film-festival-like atmosphere at a camp graduation screening open to the campers and their families.
