Senior Director’s Seat Camp

SENIOR DIRECTOR’S SEAT: 13-18 year olds

Earn 4 high school credits through Self Design High (not Selkirk College)
Grade 10, 11, 12 participants who reside in BC

During the first week of this hands-on program participants pitch, script, direct, and produce their own short films using professional camera and sound gear. Once production is complete, the focus turns to editing, where participants learn advanced editing techniques using Final Cut Pro and create an original soundtrack using Soundtrack Pro. A short internship is made available during the second week for participants who would like to work alongside a professional filmmaker to gain experience on the set or in the field. An emphasis on collaboration, responsibility and critical thinking run through all aspects of this intensive two week program. Participants do not need any gear or equipment to participate.

July 4-15 , Monday to Friday, 9AM-3PM
$350 for participants going into Grade 10, 11 and 12 who reside in BC.
$550-750 sliding scale for all other participants.
