IFP Summer Camps 2016: Short Cuts (Sec. 2, ages 11-15)
Starts June 27
Monday–Friday, June 27–July 1, 12–4 pm
The perfect camp for the future director! Students will create two short films over the course of the week. You’ll be introduced to the filmmaking process through an introductory artist’s statement film, then add further production value in creating video poem shorts. You’ll learn how to develop and storyboard a film idea, direct a production with professional gear, and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
