Digital Media Production

About Digital Media Production

Your children will get to explore a wide range of topics in DMP Camp. We will delve into digital photography with our Nikon DSLR cameras (or your camper can bring their own so we can help her learn to operate it!). We will explore Photoshop and Illustrator as handy dandy tools for Digital Media production.

We will also spend some time creating our own stories through film and stop motion animation.

Campers will write, storyboard, cast, rehearse, film and edit their own videos. We use state-of-the-art video production equipment including high definition DSLR cameras, steady-cams, and digital non-linear editing tools.

This camp is for children aged 9 to 14 and the camps are segregated by ages 9 to 11 and 12 to 14.

Why Digital Media Prodcuction?

Your children were born with immense creativity. In our digital media course we will encourage your children's silly, creative side to let loose and make movie magic!  We should let you know that we do not allow violence, offensive language, or political humor in their creations.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for our Video & Film course. We do require campers to work in teams and make team-based decisions about how and what they make. Campers should be prepared to work well with others.

What's Next?

After taking our Stop Motion course we try to point children in the direction of learning more creative content such as our Photography course, Stop Motion course, or Web Building. Many of those same courses are offered afterschool and on weekends through our sister company Young Makers Lab.
