SUMMER CAMP: Super 8 Filmmaking (ages 11-12)

SUMMER CAMP: Super 8 Filmmaking (ages 11-12)


This summer, throwback to the 80s with Super 8 cameras, gear, and make a short on real film stock!

Campers will learn the process of developing and creating a short film on Super 8 cameras with Kodak Tri-x b&w reversal film. From camera basics, shoot techniques to the chemical process, development and splicing your reel. Campers will also be immersed into the highly experimental and deeply satisfying world of creating motion pictures entirely without a camera with project-based exercises on 16mm Direct Animation.

Topics cover a wide range of concepts and techniques including: light meter, camera composition with Super 8, focus, film development process, painting directly on film, working with colored leader, and using found footage.

All films & creative projects completed in ASoF camps will screen for the public as part of our annual Loud & Clear Youth Film Festival at Alamo Drafthouse in August 2019. All camps are a flat fee of $275 with no additional costs and include a free summer camp t-shirt for each camper registered.

June 17 - June 28, 2019 from 10:00am - 1:00pm (Monday - Friday)

Pair this camp with a morning camp for students to experience a full day of camp such as: Digital Filmmaking, After Effects of SFX Make Up.
