    Our summer intensive day camps provide emerging young artists the opportunity to choose from two dynamic experiences: making short films in Filmmaking Camp, or bringing their wildest ideas to life in Stop-Motion Animation Camp. Classes are limited to 10 students per session, ensuring personal attention in a nurturing and supportive learning environment with tight-knit group collaboration. 

    In Filmmaking Camp, campers will create a short film with the support of film-loving peers and the guidance of a professional film instructor. Whether it’s a camper’s first or fiftieth time making a movie, our staff will meet campers at their individual skill level and encourage their growth.

    In Stop-Motion Animation Camp, campers will use state-of-the-art software Dragonframe and Canon DSLR cameras to bring their wildest ideas to life, practice essential techniques, watch and dissect amazing shorts from groundbreaking artists, and channel their creativity through stop-motion animation
