Introducing Camp Flix New Online Winter Camp
We are thrilled to announce our first ever Winter Break Online Camp to take place Mondays (December 21, 28) and Tuesdays (December 22, 29) next month. Scheduling was tricky this year with the holidays/holiday eves falling on Thursday and Friday so we decided to avoid them and instead hold sessions on Mondays and Tuesdays of their winter break. Similar to our 2020 online summer camp, instruction and team working sessions will be held on each of the four days with two time slots available to choose from when you register. The first Monday (12/21) and Tuesday (12/22) will focus on brainstorming and pre-production, campers will shoot their films during the remainder of the week/weekend and they will regroup with Camp Flix staff on Monday (12/28) and Tuesday (12/29) for post-production work and any reshooting if necessary. Campers can sign up as a team (minimum of 4 campers) otherwise they will be assigned to a crew with other campers.
Rather than the usual short film project, for this holiday session campers will make a trailer for a fictional movie using elements (genres, prop, sound effect) picked at random, virtual grab-bag style, at our Monday morning orientation session. Each team will be randomly given two genres, of which they can choose one or make a hybrid of the two genres, plus each team will randomly pick a prop and a sound effect that has to appear in their trailer. This is similar to what we do at our overnight sessions and it's always a lot of fun, plus campers learn the art of film promotion thru the production of a trailer and move poster. All under the over-site of our most seasoned Camp Flix staff who will be assigned to each of the crews. All film trailers will be live streamed on our YouTube channel at a to-be-determined date and time.
Why Camp Flix
Camp Flix is Georgia's premiere summer filmmaking camp – a one-week or two-week, real-world experience that immerses teens and tweens in the craft of filmmaking. Camp Flix introduces kids, ages 11-17, to the techniques, language, and processes of filmmaking and acting, as well as provide an opportunity for teamwork and collaboration as they make a short film during the week with other campers.
