When school is out, our Camps are on! The Picture House camps are a fun way to get an introduction to all kinds of filmmaking. We’ve explored 30 second videos, stop-motion animation, music videos, fairytale films, how-to’s, commercials, and much more. We’re always coming up with new ways to introduce students to all forms of filmmaking, while continuing to reinforce respect for collaboration, creativity, and film literacy. Whenever school is out, be sure to check in with The Picture House, we’ll be up to something.

In celebration of the best in children’s literature, The Picture House will provide students with the opportunity to star in their own version of a timeless classic or award-winning children’s story. A short script will be adapted from the original story and children in grades 3-5 will take on the leading roles, while kids in grades K-2 will fill out the supporting cast. These groups will work separately and together as actors, producers, cinematographers, and set designers throughout the week. The camp culminates with the last two days performing on set, as professional filmmakers work with the students to shoot and produce their film. The finished film will be a part of our red carpet Fall Student Showcase in October, and parents will receive a link to the final film.
