At CinemaKidz, imaginations take flight! We focus on play and practice as a means to explore film and animation. Participants have the opportunity to really test and try the fundamentals of moviemaking, learning in a child-driven atmosphere that promotes risk taking and creativity.
Children interact with technology in an inquiry-based manner. Children are encouraged to troubleshoot, ask questions, take risks, and make mistakes. Kids build vital soft skills, as they collaborate, plan, and refine their projects in a program that encourages exploration.
At CinemaKidz, we listen to children. Kids are involved in every step of filmmaking from start to finish. Children gain a real sense of ownership over their work, and build confidence. Children master a tool they can use to express their creative voice and ideas beyond the program.
In this special workshop, children will utilize Adobe Photoshop to plan, design, and create a unique original Movie Poster for their big Hollywood idea!
Prior to this workshop, you will receive the movie pitch worksheet where kids will plan an original pitch for a movie they’ve always wanted to Direct or act in. On the day of the workshop kids will dive into design, as they learn to integrate original photos they take, stock images, texts, and professional photoshop techniques to create a one-of-a-kind movie poster!
Kids will also have the chance to record and edit an original radio commercial to pitch their big movie idea.
Here is your challenge, should you choose to accept it. You and a teammate will have 24 hours to create a 60 second to 2 minute short film based on a secret topic, which will be revealed the night before camp.
On the morning of camp, children will be broken into pairs to form their production team. Each group will plan, write, film, and finally edit the project under the guidance of our professional filmmakers and educators. This is a great camp for beginners as well as seasoned directors. Join as a team with friends, or meet new aspiring filmmakers from around the country! At the end of camp, the final projects will be screened and one team will win a $50 Amazon Gift card!
