THIS SUMMER CAMP INSPIRES STUDENTS TO BECOME THE NEXT GREAT FILMMAKER.
Technology has revolutionized the film industry. While content has become easier and more affordable than ever to create – the marketplace has become that much more competitive. This five-day camp will teach aspiring videographers how to storyboard, capture, edit and distribute creative, consumption worthy digital content.
Our Video Production Camps will be taught by Greg Wright, Director of Marketing at Tahoe Expedition Academy. Greg’s path to joining TEA was through the world of action sports. Prior to TEA, Greg was at the helm of an influential action sports publishing network whose titles included Freeskier Magazine and Snow Board Magazine. His particular area of expertise is branded content production and distribution, and he’s found an impactful application for that skillset at TEA. From our TEAFilms.org program to our yearbook, website blog, social media, and weekly feel-good-friday email newsletters, Greg is most definitely the “Chief Storyteller” at TEA.
This offering will be differentiated to engage learners of all levels and abilities – from those who have never held a camera to those who have mastered some digital fundamentals and are hungry for more technical skills and how to’s. Each camp will include:
- Storyboarding and Shot Selection: Campers will create their film shot lists, think critically about their story and plan how best to capture relevant content.
- Camera Operation Using GoPro Heros: Campers will utilize camp provided GoPro Heros and GoPro accessories to capture action-packed, scenic and content-driven shots.
- File Management and Editing: After a few days in the field capturing content, campers will manage their work files in post-production. Exporting file work from SD Cards into Adobe Premiere post-production software. Note, camp will provide campers with Adobe Creative Cloud accounts for the duration of the camp as well!
- Character Development: “Teamwork makes the Dream Work.” Campers will work together in small teams and learn how soft skills and strong character traits like perseverance, collaboration and respect can take their projects from good to great. Lessons we hope last long after this camp ends.
