Enroll in Art First Create Films Summer Film Camp and learn the art of visual storytelling. Our comprehensive program introduces youth participants to the fundamental elements of film production, with a focus on creating high-quality films and images as a two-dimensional visual art form. In addition to learning about acting, dancing, lighting, screenplay writing, sound production, and Foley Art, campers will design and produce their own digital videos using industry-standard software such as Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 18 and Logic Pro.

Upon completing the camp, students will have gained a solid understanding of basic filmmaking terminology, how to operate a camera, and how to edit videos using DaVinci Resolve. As part of their final projects, students will form film crews and work collaboratively to create short films that showcase their newfound skills and creativity.
