    Modern Storytelling: Movie-Making is open to high school students of all abilities who dream of telling important stories across different media platforms. Participants will learn how to create film and shows in our on-campus production studio, where they will develop, shoot, edit and share their stories using our field camera equipment and editing labs.

    The School of Communications at Quinnipiac welcomes students who dream of becoming the next big content creator to join us in telling their stories to the world.

    Based out of our Ed McMahon Communications Center, participants will learn practical media production skills and techniques. You will be working alongside experienced faculty and staff members who will share their expertise in media production and their desire to inspire and teach youth.

    Content created during the camp may be used on our various Quinnipiac media channels, as well as for your own channels and personal portfolios.

    At the end of this program, you will walk away with:

    • The ability to create dynamic and diverse media content for all types of audiences
    • A comprehensive experience working in a team environment with others who share your passions
    • Skills in scripting, editing, reporting and producing professional-caliber content
    • Professional content you can use on your own social media channels, or in portfolios for applications to college-level programs including media production, communications, broadcasting and more
