Sarasota Film Festival Camps Are Now Virtual

RocketKids Article

Are your kids bored at home this summer? Get them the gift of film camps! Adapting to these challenging times, the popular Sarasota Film Camps is now able to offer its unique curriculum online for students 8-14.  Film professionals with decades of industry experience in Hollywood as well as film educators from the 22-year-old Sarasota Film Festival, an event of world renown, will keep the kids learning, entertained, and occupied in the safety of their homes. 

The camps will utilize livestream Zoom sessions, materials on Teachable and other technologies to provide a film and media program that will help students not only stay creative and engaged during the summer, but also make them stronger media creators, enriched with an invaluable skill set for our times. Filmmakers will learn in a fun, conservatory model where each student gets to experience different film-related professions, being a screenwriter, director, producer, production designer, editor, cinematographer, and actor. The students will also truly understand the value of teamwork and collaboration.

Every week of the camp will feature a different theme, from online videos to superheroes, fantasy and other genres. The theme will have its own specific curriculum and will be used to inspire the created short films and videos.

Each day will include:

Film Education in screenwriting, cinematography, editing, film history, producing, directing, and more. Students will learn how to use the professional editing application Adobe Premiere and other industry methods. Skills practice — filming with available equipment like a smartphone or tablet. The campers will be guided every step of the way. The finished projects will have public screenings for family and friends on the camp’s YouTube channel and in social media.

Weekly camps start on June 1st, 2020 and will run for 3 hours every day from 9AM EST to 12PM EST, Monday through Friday. Additional afternoon sessions may be added based on demand. Limited spots available for this online virtual film camp opportunity.
