Description

Calling all young filmmakers, actors, and writers! FilmGate Miami is launching a brand-new summer program to teach high school students how to make movies.

This two-week day camp is a crash-course in all skills related to the creating media content and telling great stories. Young artists will learn how to write short scripts, how to operate professional cameras, how to direct actors and edit a scene. Students will learn from accomplished filmmakers, writers, and teachers from all over the world and take the first steps on their journey to Hollywood.

Open to all students aged 12-17!

Two sessions with a week break.

They can take both sessions or just one. It will not be repetitive.


Daily Schedule

Classes run 10am to 3pm Monday to Thursday, in two sessions (July 8- 22 and July 29-Aug 8). Students will meet a variety of instructors and speakers, and take part in exercises that involve watching, studying, and of course creating their own movies. Each day will include a break for lunch (included in the price).

This class will focus on education, training, and having fun! Students will have plenty of time to gain experience with state-of-the-art equipment and editing software, and become fluent in the language of film.


Weekly Schedule

This camp is composed of two sessions, each involving 8 days of classes. Students will meet renowned Hollywood filmmakers, learn from local industry professionals, and develop, shoot, and edit their own short films that will be screened at the Silverspot Cinema! Students will take the first step on their Hollywood journey, gaining valuable experience and insight that will serve them for years to come!

Sessions A and B will both involve focus on producing a short film. However, students are encouraged to attend both sessions if they want further practice and a whole new film to put on their reel! Speakers, instructors, and assignments will differ between sessions. After the end of Session A, on Thursday, July 18, we will resume class on Monday, July 29.
