Learn the art of film-making at The Ridgefield Playhouse on July 10 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
All you need is a smart phone, an imagination and a desire to make a movie! That’s right – this summer, Filmmaker, Katie Torpey, is running a fun, creative 2-week day camp teaching children and teens the fundamentals of independent film-making and the art of visually capturing a story on their smart phones. Campers will watch and analyze movies, receive hands-on instruction on storytelling, writing, directing and editing. Plus, they will learn how to use multiple camera lenses, fly a remote controlled drone, and use visual angles and lighting to help them creatively tell a story in their own artistic style.
During the 2-weeks, each camper will make a music video and a 3-minute short film. Every camper will show one of their films on the big screen at The Ridgefield Playhouse on the last 2 days of camp with different awards being given out for originality, creativity, cinematography, story, etc. All campers will leave camp with the knowledge, skills and equipment to go off and make their own artistic films in the future!
