Limited spots are open for the youth (ages 12-18) moviemaking camp. This is a hands-on digital moviemaking camp. Participants in Week 1 (June 9-13; 3 to 5 p.m.) learn to craft a short screenplay from concept to polished script. We will discuss creating solid structure, character development, dialogue, and formatting the screenplay. Cost is $75.

In Week 2 (June 16-20; 1 to 5 p.m.), selected scripts from Week 1 will be produced. Participants will learn about pre-production, directing, shooting, working with sound technology, as well as editing their short movie on Final Cut software in the state-of-the-art Visual Arts editing lab. Cost is $125.

Sign up for both weeks at the discounted rate of $180. All equipment is provided, participants simply need to bring their imagination and enthusiasm.

The young moviemakers, family, friends,and community are invited to attend the world premiere screening of movies created in the 2008 youth and adult camps at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 29, at the historic Empire Theatre in downtown Grand Forks. Is your daughter or son ready to walk down the red carpet?
