With of a proliferation of superheroes littering the big and small screen, the Foundation for the Augmentation of African-Americans in Film’s Reel Kids program is launching their 2nd Annual Reel Kids Summer Movie Camp that will teach camp participants to dream and create their own superheroes.
The Comic Book camp kicks off on Monday, July 25th and will run through Friday, August 5th, in conjunction with Celebration Church of Columbia’s (MD) Champ Camp. This summer camp participants will learn how to use their imagination to create their own heroes and stories. A group of talented illustrators and graphic artist will provide expert instruction over the two-week camp, culminating in one participant whose work will have the opportunity to be published.
Last year, 26 camp participants learned how to make a short film, which premiered during the closing exercises at the conclusion of last year’s camp. This time around, the Foundation is eager to continue to not just stretch the creativity of young minds but to hopefully spark a passion that they will carry with them for a lifetime.
