Advanced Video Production

Education Unlimited - Advanced Video Production

Advanced Video Production Camp offers students entering grades 9 – 12 the unique opportunity to develop multimedia production skills including scripting for video, lighting, directing, shooting, editing and special effects. This advanced camp is perfect for high-schoolers who have already dabbled in digital filmmaking (or even who have attained substantial mastery already) and for those who have completed the basic Video Production camp and want to go further.  Campers should bring a script or project they want to develop.  The instructors will provide professional advice and each small group will be guided by the teachers in workshopping their script into something that is ready to produce.

Students are encouraged to come to the camp with a project in mind, and even with a script draft if possible. A central goal of the program is to have students leave with a quality video trailer to illustrate the project, and a practiced and well thought out "pitch" prepared for their project idea.  Even students who come with minimal preparatory work can make good progress and learn important skills. The clearer the idea of what the film maker wants to create in the class, the better the final sample trailer and "pitch" can be.  Preliminary projects done in the camp will depend on the abilities, interest and follow through of the campers.  The primary focus of the program is for more advanced students, but if students with only more intermediate levels of experience attend, we will accommodate them, enabling them to progress as their own skills and interests allow, and at whatever pace is comfortable for them.
Our Advanced Camp participants will be use a professional quality camera that is often used to provide training for adult level video professionals.
The Advanced Video camp strives to challenge students to reach a new level of knowledge and technical skill, in a program that is carefully scheduled to maximize each student's progress.
