    At the JBFC you can explore a different aspect of filmmaking and create something new each day. This series of hands-on workshops takes advantage of the screening room, sound stage, recording studio, animation studio, and so much more!

    Throughout each session and from year to year, campers will encounter new projects at deeper levels. Projects may include:

    • digital storytelling, short films, scriptwriting, lighting for film, documentary

    • sound recording, songwriting, music video, scoring for film

    • video game design, multimedia installation, interactive media

    • 2D and 3D stop-motion animation, computer animation

    Each session’s mix of activities will vary, but all include demonstrations, creative collaboration, and opportunities for hands-on experiences using all the resources of our state-of-the-art facility. Small groups (maximum: 10) are led by our renowned faculty and special guest instructors, assisted by trained counselors. Specialists include make-up artists, actors, production designers, songwriters, and more! We maintain a ratio of one adult to every five campers.
