Attending film camp

For those teenagers who want to explore a career in filmmaking with serious ambitions of going to college for film studies, they are heavily encouraged to attend a film camp through a well-known film school in the nation.
Camps can be generally structured, while most are specialized in specific fields, such as filmmaking, acting, screenwriting, digital media, and broadcast journalism.
These “camps” are not your typical summer camp and are not located in some cabin in the woods. The majority of the more well-renowned camps are located in cities including New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Orlando, and many even oversees, including France and Australia.
Financial aid is available for students who need assistance to fund these camps. They should expect to work side-bys-side with film students and professionals in the production of a film while receiving hands-on instruction. Every aspect of the creation of a film is explored, and students will see how each weaves into the other to produce a finished project.
Camps are available for acting, filmmaking, screenwriting, journalism, musical theatre, video game design or 3D animation, as well as film production. These camps give high school students an opportunity to obtain knowledge and experience far beyond what they would get in a typical classroom setting and also put them ahead of students entering college for the first time having no to limited background in filmmaking. Further, the connections made at these camps with fellow campers and instructors will be invaluable throughout their careers.
Film camps have been attended in the past by the sons and daughters of Hollywood filmmakers, actors and media figures, and they are excellent ways to propel a young person dreaming of a successful career in the film industry in the right direction. Camps are scattered throughout the country, located mainly in areas where the film industry is located, so students also have the opportunity to be where the action takes place, whether that be in Hollywood, Orlando, or New York City.
