KidsEye™ is a fun yet intensive five-day filmmaking camp for children ages 8-17 presented by FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival™. Over the course of the last 17 years, the camp has expanded, allowing children to learn more about what it takes to make a movie. We strive to incorporate as much hands-on learning as possible, therefore placing our focus primarily on production. KidsEye™ participants step into the roles of screenwriters, actors, directors and crew, and learn the importance of working as a team.
This summer the KidsEye™ camp will take place July 6-10, 2015. During the first two days participants will attend pre-production workshops on screenwriting, storyboarding, acting, directing and production design. Then participants will apply what they have learned in the production of their group’s short film. If time allows, participants will also have the opportunity to partake in the editing process.
Although many children have access to their own video cameras and home computer editing systems, KidsEye™ builds on that experience by allowing participants to interact with trained filmmakers and educators. The program is designed to enhance the knowledge, skills and understanding of all participants, regardless of their level of experience.
Registration is $395 which includes a copy of the finished films and the official KidsEye™ t-shirt. Plus, participants receive access passes to FLICKERS main events, including the annual KidsEye™ International Film Festival and to the opening night of the Annual Flickers RI International Horror Festival in October. And wait, there's more! The film that the children shoot will be screened for family and friends at a specially arranged screening called the "Red Carpet Premiere." This latter event takes place in August, during the main RIIFF.
KidsEye™ is a very hands-on program and every year the program reflects the input of the campers. The program also reflects the knowledge and skills brought to the table by our participants and our instructors.
