Camp Flix, the nation’s premier filmmaking and movie lovers camp, returns for its third season this summer in Atlanta. Camp Flix is an immersive summer program introducing kids ages 11 to 17 to the techniques, language and process of filmmaking and acting. Campers will explore the filmmaking process from idea pitching to final cut of a short film, all under the guidance of award winning industry professionals and filmmakers.
“From the idea pitch to the final cut, campers will get hands-on instruction in the crafts of filmmaking and acting taught by industry professionals,” says Tom Karsch, CEO of Camp Flix. “Technology has made filmmaking more accessible and affordable and we are seeing younger and younger kids getting into filmmaking.”
“Camp Flix will tap into that passion and provide the skills to make them more polished digital filmmakers. It’s a very comprehensive program, and an incredibly fun experience,” adds Karsch. Campers will learn how to market and distribute their own projects, and every camper will walk the red carpet as the movies are screened at a Hollywood-style Friday night gala premiere.
Sessions for 2014 include Oglethorpe University July 6-11 and Emory University July 20-25. The camp is accredited by ACA, the American Camp Association. Visit to http://www.campflix.com for more information and to view the short films from past sessions.
