The Writer's Garret, 10809 Garland Road, Dallas 75218
 
With video websites and smartphone apps growing, spreading, and influencing our society daily, the age of amateur short film is upon us. Video Camp is a five-day immersion into the world of film-making, including collaboration in writing a script or song for performance in a short film. Together, summer campers will plan shots and storyboards, cast roles, rehearse, film, and edit the video. Each filmmaker will experience the value of imagination and dramatization, while learning various aspects of performance and improvisation.
Come out and enjoy the fun and learning with Video Camp -- and leave with a film created by your team!
