Documentary Film Camp offers a hands-on opportunity to explore the art of filmmaking in a fun, educational, safe and inclusive environment. Camp focuses on students working together and developing the skills to produce their own films and recognizing their own voice.
They will work in small groups, developing and producing a short documentary film (pre-production, production and post-production), under the supervision and guidance of PUC film staff. The first two days will focus on pre-production: research, interviewing techniques, and camera basics. Wednesday is production day, on location with our subjects. Thursday and Friday will cover post production: editing video and sound into a completed short documentary film. Students must commit to the full week of classes.
The finished short films will be featured at a student showcase on Sunday, June 30, at 2 pm at the Cameo Cinema, with an encore screening taking place during this year’s Napa Valley Film Festival (November 13 -17). The Student Short Film Showcase is free to attend and open to all community members.
Take advantage of the collaboration between Friends of the Cameo and the NVFF, unique in Napa Valley, to enhance your technical and creative skills while experiencing real-world and interdisciplinary applications in the arts. The NVFF Film Camp, intentionally structured as a two-part program, includes a screenwriting workshop May 18 & 19 at the Napa County Office of Education, followed by a full week of extensive hands-on production June 17 – 21.
