Film-making Fosters Creative Campers

Campers are grateful to retreat to the air conditioned film-making studios to work on projects and videos during sunny days at camp! Film-makingNot only are the film-making studios extremely comfortable, but campers also enjoy using brand new Apple equipment, which is atypical of traditional sleep away camps.

In preparation for movie making, campers spend the first two days compiling a list of their favorite places at camp, people they want to interview, and questions they might have to ask. After outlining the basis for their camp-made videos, campers spend the next couple of days running around camp filming and interviewing whoever and whatever they like. Fellow Campers, Counselors, Directors, and Specialists were called to the “Hot Seat” and asked hard-pressing questions. “What is your favorite meal for dinner?”, “Who is the funniest person at camp?”, “Which is the most desired division to counsel?”. Additionally, the Lake, Dome, Dining Halls, Pagodas, and Ampitheatre proved to be the most popular places at camp.

Campers are taught how to use iMovie and practice editing on Apple Computers with Final Cut. Campers become extremely dedicated to their projects and become quite the perfectionists. Pleas to stay and continue editing make campers upset to leave film-making at the end of the day! Regardless, campers take tremendous pride in their work and are allowed the creativity to tailor each video to their own liking. The result is frequently not short of a masterpiece!
