Summer Film Camp OVERVIEW
Summer Film Camp
WHAT IS SUMMER FILM CAMP?
Presented by the Lone Star Film Society (501c3 non-profit), this week-long summer camp provides a basic overview of film production for high school-aged students (13-18 years of age) interested in the art of filmmaking. The week consists of hands-on education in screenwriting, acting, directing, cinematography, editing, animation, sound recording, and design.
Our film campers will write, direct and produce their own story as the week’s goal is to complete a short film which will be screened at the upcoming Lone Star Film Festival in Fort Worth (November 13-17, 2019). Upon completion of this film camp, participants will have a better understanding of how to write a script, storyboard, cast actors, hire crew, edit and complete their own films for distribution.
WHEN IS SUMMER FILM CAMP?
The 2019 film camp runs June 10 -14 (5 days) from 9 am to 3 pm.
WHO TEACHES THE FILM CAMP?
Our film camp instructors are filmmakers themselves. Our participants will get first-hand knowledge of how to professionally shoot and work on a movie set.
WHERE IS IT HELD?
This year, film camp is held at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center (FWCAC), which is centrally located in the Cultural District of Fort Worth. The facility has an easy drop-off and pick-up driveway and there is a large parking structure located between the FWCAC and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Parking rates do apply.
WHY SUMMER FILM CAMP?
From your serious student filmmaker to your everyday lover of movies, this camp is the ultimate film camp experience because each participant will depart camp with a completed product (short film) and the basic knowledge and tools to continue creating films on their own.
LSFF Film Camp is a great place to test the waters of someone interested in film and it’s also a great place to hone the skill of student filmmakers hoping to better themselves as artists. The LSFF Film Camp explains the process of making movies and explores the jobs and tasks necessary to complete a film.
