ART26201 will host the 7th Annual ART26201 Young Filmmakers Camp, open to students 12 and up, at LASCAUX Micro-Theater in Buckhannon, West Virginia. The five-day workshop will guide students through writing, shooting, and editing a short film. All students will learn the essentials of sharing a compelling story, screenwriting, videography, and editing while working in a collaborative environment. Additionally, students will be introduced to the vocabulary of filmmaking so that they can communicate about their work professionally. At the end of the week, we will hold a screening of student-produced films so students can celebrate their accomplishments with their friends and families.

Andrew Carroll, Bryce O’Loughlin, Jon Benjamin, and Jess Johnson return to lead the camp instruction.

Please contact to reserve your student’s seat, and be sure to include your student’s T-shirt size when signing up for camp!

Snacks and drinks will be provided; however, students will be asked to bring lunch daily.
