Young Film Makers Camp
Snowy Owl Theater, Icicle Creek Center for the Arts - 7409 Icicle Road, Leavenworth, WA, 98826
Film campers are in for a fun and exciting hands-on introduction to the media arts in a beautiful natural setting. Start the week filming around the natural beauty of the Icicle Creek Campus, followed by two days of editing and post production training at the Wenatchee Valley Technical Skills Center. From concept to final cut, young filmmakers will experience each step of the creative process and experiment with new technologies. Campers will learn how to conduct a meaningful interview, handle a camera, set up a shot, record audio, shoot aerials from a drone and even get their feet wet learning the basics of underwater cinematography. And once the footage is all gathered, of course, it all has to be organized and edited. By the end of the week, campers will have planned, shot and edited their own movie and we'll cap it all off with a family screening complete with popcorn! Optional transportation between Wenatchee and Leavenworth is available.
SHUTTLE SERVICE Transportation is available between the Wenatchee Valley Technical Skills Center and the Icicle Creek campus (with a stop in Cashmere) each day.
