Ready for your close up kids?

If so, a Fairfield University camp might be the place for you

FAIRFIELD — Fairfield University’s Media Center will open its doors and share its state-of-the-art facilities, and standout faculty with high school students interested in filmmaking. The camp is being offered for the first time this summer by the Media Center, home of the University’s undergraduate New Media Film, Television and Radio program. Information and registration details for the camp may be found here.

Topics covered include film language and technique, screenwriting, camera operation, lighting elements, audio recording, directing, producing, and digital editing. The camp will take place within the Media Center facilities with modern, high definition equipment, and advanced postproduction hardware and software.
Students will receive intensive individual instruction throughout the week, leading to production and screening of their own short digital films. They will direct their own films while learning the processes of pre-production, production, and post-production of filmmaking as well as serve on crew positions of the films of their fellow students.
Each student film will be screened before an audience of fellow campers, family, and friends at the camp’s film festival, when awards will be given for best film, directing, cinematography, writing and editing. Each student will take home a DVD copy of their work, and a packet for film festival submission.
Three camp sessions will be offered starting July 10-16, July 17-23, and July 24-30. Enrollment in the camp is limited, and interested students are encouraged to register early. For more information please call 203-254-4000 ext. 2676.
