Many of you have fond memories of those idyllic summer days at camp --and the summer nights sharing tall tales around that communal fire. We’re bringing that back, but we’re doing it a little different.
Nestled amongst the pine forest in the Southern Sierras, just above the Kern river valley, is a century-old summer camp. Cabins, bunk beds, a mess hall and perhaps rabid woodchucks and the ghostly ethereal singing of bygone Campfire Girls set the scene.
If you’ve ever thought: “I’d like to try my hand at making a movie someday” —
This is your time.
There, while mentored by world-class professionals — think of them as your camp counselors — you and your team will be introduced to the art, craft and magic of film making.
In 4 Days, You and Your Team Will:
