Viewing and Doing
Learn about media from the inside out through the JBFC’s Viewing & Doing program!

In addition, you’ll participate in film-related challenges and activities as you work together in groups.
Dates: June 29–July 3, July 20–24, Aug. 3–7

On the Set
Time to make a movie! Campers write, direct, film, and edit a short collaborative film in a professional environment. Working in a group, you’ll learn to pitch and develop ideas, storyboard, design light and sound, and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro CC. This filmmaking immersion is an opportunity to see a short project through from concept to completion.
Dates: July 6–10, July 27–31, Aug. 10-14
