CREATE YOUR OWN STORY
Filmmaking@TY is a two-week intensive program to help teens learn to express themselves through stories and film.
Learn To Tell Your Story
The Filmmaking@TY program will challenge teens to not only find their voice but develop the ability to share it through video. Finding your voice, learning the core components of storytelling, and gaining technical ability to effectively express yourself is a great way to nurture our leaders of tomorrow. TY Digital Storytelling instructors will work with the group as a whole to discuss effective storytelling formats and film techniques as well as individually to support each campers session project.
Videography from an Industry Expert
In addition to developing their ability to express themselves through storytelling, participants will also gain the tangible skills involved in shooting and editing their short film. An experienced industry professional will instruct teens using Adobe Premier to edit videos shot using regularly available equipment.
