The Foundation for the Augmentation of African-Americans in Film will launch its inaugural Reel Kids Summer Movie Camp, July 6-17.
The two-week camp will target children between the ages of 9-12 and will take place at Celebration Church of Columbia.
The goal of the Summer Camp project is to give the children an introductory overview into one of the most popular aspects of the multi-billion dollar film industry, the art of the movie trailer.
In keeping with the mission of The Reel Kids program, our Summer Camp project will establish a foundation for future film learning for children 9-12 in a fun-filled group environment.
At the conclusion of our Summer Camp project, the children will have the skills to create and produce a short film project.
The aims and objectives of the Reel Kids Summer Movie Camp program are:
Campers will learn the five elements that compose a successful movie trailer. Each day they will learn a different story technique and will be separated into groups to interact and create their own stories.
The winning group’s story will get the opportunity to produce and shoot their movie trailer with the assistance of an industry professional.
Overall, the Reel Kids Summer Camp will provide a rich, vibrant, and stimulating movie-themed atmosphere that provides children with unique enrichment opportunity, learning, and recreational activities that foster each child’s intellectual, social, emotional, and physical well-being.
Registration for the 2015 Reel Kids Summer Movie Camp is currently FULL!!!
