2020 LYFA FILMMAKING SUMMER CAMP - JULY 6-17

The Lakewood Young Filmmakers Academy Summer Camp is a two week filmmaking boot camp in which the students write, shoot and edit a real film from start to finish with the help of award winning industry professionals and mentors.  The camp culminates in a Red Carpet Premiere of their film at The Capitol Theatre where their movie will be seen by a packed house of filmmakers, media, fans, friends and family.

INFO ABOUT THE 2020 SUMMER FILMMAKING CAMP!

This year due to unprecedented circumstances influenced by COVID-19 the Lakewood Young Filmmakers Academy 2020 Summer Camp will have to be structured differently.


In order to maintain safety measures designed to keep students and staff safe we will be limiting the number of campers in attendance each day as well as the number of students in each group. This year we will not be able to be in session for the 10 straight week days, but rather over the course of 3 consecutive weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

 

Below is the new weekend only schedule and a list of crew positions. Rather than have all students in camp at once for 2 straight weeks, we have opted for smaller groups in camp less days and for longer duration. 

Once enrolled, you will be provided with a link to rank your crew positions and all the weekends you are available in the event that your child is selected for more than one crew position.

 

Please note, the staff will be choosing the teams using your ranking as a guideline but cannot guarantee your first choice will be given.

Once you enroll you will receive an form to select your child's crew position preferences (writing, film crew, editing)



The new schedule will be as follows:

WEEKEND 1 - WRITING
JULY 11-12, 10AM-5PM

Students interested in screenwriting will convene in small groups to write this year's film.

WEEKEND 2 - FILMING
JULY 18-19, 10AM-5PM

Students interested in directing and filming will convene in small groups to shoot this year's film. Actors will also be on hand these days.

WEEKEND 3 - EDITING
JULY 25-26, 10AM-5PM

Students interested in editing will convene in small groups to edit this year's film.
