Film & Acting Camp

We will see you in Summer 2022
Create Something Incredible

Film Camp

Create your very own short film, in just one week! Work with seasoned filmmakers and professional film equipment to bring your ideas to life. At the end of the week, watch your film debut for friends and family on the big screen at Compass College!

In this hands-on camp, students work with industry professionals to create their very own short films! Throughout the week, they learn how to script, scout, shoot, and edit a film using state-of-the-art equipment. From there, the film campers work with the students in the Acting Camp to bring their films to life. As they work with the actors, they learn set etiquette, casting techniques, and how to direct an actor. At the end of the week, there’s a pizza party for the filmmakers and actors, followed by a movie screening where friends and family can watch the films in the theater at Compass College!

Reviews

“Film camp was a great first look into the industry! It’s a great starter program to get your feet wet. I was immediately hooked. Attending Film Camp also played a major role in my decision to attend CCCA for my college degree.”

John LeFan, Student CCCA Class of 2013

 

“Acting Camp is a great place to start networking with other local actors and professionals. I’m still working on projects with people that I attended camp with over two years ago. It was an excellent experience!”

Micah Conrad, Student CCCA Class of 2013
