A slice of Hollywood comes to Summer at Park this year in the form of Movie Making Magic. Campers will learn the basic concepts of making a movie such as: storyboarding, location, camera, shots, lights, sound, music, and editing through examples and discussion. Future "behind the scenes" directors will enjoy the hands on approach, while also getting to experience life on-screen using improvisation acting to play roles in their cinematic masterpieces. Primarily using everyday products such as iPads/Macs and iMovie editing software, campers will be arranged into groups so they can plan, film, and edit their own short movie to present to the other campers at the end of the session. As the directors of the films, each group will be tasked with determining the best schedule for filming and editing, so everything is set for the red carpet premiere. Look out Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese, the stars of tomorrow are just beginning their Movie Making journey!
