Summer Kids Camp: The Art of Filmmaking

2018-06-25 13.03.42


Summer Art of Filmmaking Camps at Sedona Arts Center provide a rich artistic environment for youth ages 10 to 14 yrs old. Instructed by Bryan Reinhart and Kelli Klymenko, students begin by deconstructing scenes from contemporary favorites, examining all the aspects that make a scene work. Students then develop their own story line to bring to the big screen.

Students will explore writing, story development, acting, camera work, lighting, editing, graphics and presentation. The process creates a great opportunity for students to discover new interests and skill sets. The camp culminates in a screening of the final film but students have the
opportunity to create their own individual edit during camp from the footage they have developed together.


Monday – Friday, June 3 – 14, 2019
Filmmaking Morning session 9 am to 12:30 pm
Lunch 12:30 to 1 pm
