Teens invited to movie-making camp at Fairfield University


Image: Fairfield UniversityFairfield University's award-winning Media Center, home of the University's New Media, Film, Television and Radio program, is offering a filmmaking camp for high school students this summer. Participants will learn about film language and technique, screenwriting, camera operation, lighting elements, audio recording, directing, producing, and digital editing.

Three week-long sessions will be offered: July 9-14, July 16-21 and July 23-28.

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 direct their own films while learning the processes of pre-production, production and post-production and serve on crew positions of the films of their fellow students.

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 his or her work and a packet for film festival submission.
