NIU Film Camp

NIU Film Camp 

Campers entering grades 9-12
June 16-21, 2019

Residential Camp 

Do you love movies? Of course you do. But have you ever wanted to make a movie? Do you want to …

·         Be a movie director?

·         Learn cinematography?

·         Become a digital video editor?

·         Have a movie in a film festival?

If so, you will do all this and more at NIU's Film Camp.

Campers will work with experienced media producers, camera operators and directors while learning about digital filmmaking from script to screen. By the end of camp, each camper will have their own group-produced movie to share with family and friends and film-festival audiences.

Here is a brief list of what campers will learn:

·         The three phases of filmmaking: preproduction, production and postproduction

·         Writing a script

·         Camera operation, shooting techniques and styles

·         Cinematography

·         Digital nonlinear editing

·         Filmmaking production aesthetics

Former Campers have gone on to earn some great achievements, such as winning a Chicago Film Festival CineYouth Award.
