How much fun and learning can we pack into one week? Come and find out as you play, make, and explore with a range of media in our state-of-the-art production spaces. Our renowned faculty leads small groups of 10, and we maintain a ratio of one adult to every five campers, assuring individual attention. All sessions are held at the Media Arts Lab with occasional visits to the JBFC Theater, just down the street.

Session Themes:

Animation: If you can imagine it, you can create it, through cut-paper and mixed-media stop-motion animation. You’ll use HD software DragonFrame, along with plenty of imagination and creative collaboration.

WebTV: This fantastic week will include conceiving, writing, and shooting a series of episodes designed for distribution on the Internet. Learn to develop great stories and compelling characters as the raw material for a successful series.

It’s Easy Being Green: Create characters in futuristic, ancient, or even completely absurd settings! Both creative and technical, this course uses the green screen and the technique of compositing so you can take your story anywhere you can imagine.

Movie Magic: Objects can defy gravity, multiply, or move at the speed of light—no big budget needed! Collaborate on writing, directing, and editing a short film that uses these mind-bending effects with low-tech solutions.
