Nazareth College is proud to host the 2012 Rochester Teen Film Camp this coming July 23 through July 27. The camp, consisting of a one-week intensive class, will allow students to take part in mini-workshops and guided participation in the art of both filmmaking and digital video production, which will culminate in a screening of the student’s completed projects for parents and community members in the Nazareth College Arts Center. Experienced filmmakers from the Rochester region, as well as guest filmmakers and Nazareth College staff will teach the workshops. For more information, contact Dr. Brian Bailey, co-founder of the both the Rochester Teen Film Festival and Camp, at (585) 389-2764 or visit http://www.naz.edu/rochester-teen-film-festival-film-camp.
The workshops will cover a broad range of topics regarding filmmaking and video production, including screenwriting, lighting, sound, and camera operation, shot composition, directing actors, and post-production editing and distribution. During the week-long camp, the forty selected participants will stay on the Nazareth College campus in student housing, where evenings will include film screenings, discussion of techniques, and analysis of popular films. Students are allowed to bring their own equipment, but the camp provides cameras, computers, editing software and sound equipment for the camp participants’ use. Tuition for the camp is $600, with scholarships available for those who qualify for free and reduced lunch programs at school.
