The Enzian Theater in Maitland offer the chance to create your own movie at Young Filmmakers’ Summer Camp! Experience the art of filmmaking as you study cinematic techniques, learn about the exciting history of filmmaking, and dive into the production of an independent film. After wrapping the shoot, see your work projected on the big screen with your fellow filmmakers, family, and friends.
In addition to learning aspects of making a film (script writing, character development, shooting, editing, and more), students will learn a brief summary of film history and why film is still an important form of expression today.
