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!
