We held a 5-day film camp for teens, introducing and developing the skills a film maker needs to complete a short movie. These included:
screenwriting, storyboarding, casting, lighting, cameras, sound recording, direction, production, editing, and exhibition
The camp took place for 5 hours each day (10 am to 3pm), from Monday 12th August to Friday 16th August 2019, based at the Marcellus Free Library community room. Cost to enroll was $50. Lunch was provided. The goal of the camp is to encourage local film makers, and we aim for every attendee to have their own or be a part of a completed film soon after attending. Footage will be shot with participants own smart phones. Enrollment allows one free film submission to the M3F3 2019 festival. Participants were at least 8th grade.
The camp was taught by Sarah Grabman, a graduate of the Syracuse University film program, film maker, and local resident.
