Kids "BLOCKBUSTER" Movie Camps

ARE HERE!!! 

KIDS MAKE A MOVIE CAMP   

JULY 15- 19, 2019

10 AM – 4 PM

This camp will bring out the young storytellers and movie makers in your kids. Campers will learn how to shape stories, build their own characters, create storyboards, act and film their very own short movie based on movies and tv shows they already love!

“My favorite thing about this camp is it teaches kids to work together as a team as every camp member will have a contribution to help bring the vision to life”, says creative director and TAM founder Raquel Gardner.

Campers pick a movie genre and the choose from a list of successful films in that genre. Campers then decide which part they will play. We start the camp off with some fun games to get the kids familiar and comfortable with each other. We also give some fundamental acting training and coaching on set.

Kids also have the option of utilizing the Aerial Warehouse Parkour/Aerial gym for some fun action in their movie. They will have an hour everyday to work on trampolines, the rock climbing wall and learn some aerial and parkour moves from certified coaches. Of course, the coaches will be on hand at all times to guide and help make sure safety is at the top of the list.

Kids can also help behind the scenes as well, if they want to try their hand at directing, camera operator, make up & hair or sound. Whether kids are in front of the camera or behind the scenes, every camper will have an active role in the movie making process. 

The first two days will be dedicated to games, story building, character development, location ideas and some acting exercises. The remaining days will be spent shooting their film in and around the studio.

* If decide to shoot anywhere that requires walking or driving, all parents will have to give the ok or shooting will be limited to studio.

 Tuition is $850 for the 5 days.

Lunch is not included.

A pizza lunch is available for an extra charge.

* A copy of the finished movie will be emailed to parents upon completion.

Who knows, a creative Stephen Spielberg or a Jennifer Lawrence type may emerge!
