This summer, Calgary teenagers ages 14 – 17 will have another opportunity to write, direct, shoot and edit a film in The 15th Annual Summer Media Arts Camp. The Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers (CSIF) matches local teens with professional filmmakers for this camp, which takes place July 21 – Aug. 1, 2008. This hands-on experience is the only camp of its kind in Calgary offering youths great experience in the art of film production.
In the first week of the camp, participants will be introduced to film concepts and theories, which includes a workshop on scriptwriting and pre-production planning. They will learn how to use the film equipment while working together on a film project. By the end of the first week, teenagers are starring in and shooting their film. The second week of camp begins with the editing of the projects. The final projects are premiered at a gala screening, to which both participants and the public are invited to attend. Many past participants have gone on to careers in film and video.
The Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers is a non-profit organization dedicated to the production and exhibition of media arts in the Calgary community. The Summer Media Arts Camp allows teens to experiment with the media arts at a reasonable cost.
