Teenagers film with a green screen
Our filmmaking summer camp offers children and teens an immersive and intensive filmmaking experience. In just 6 weeks, students will journey through the entire filmmaking process and create a film from start to finish. Students will learn the mechanics of filmmaking and how to work as part of a team.
Each session students will be introduced to new concepts and steps in the filmmaking process. They will see a short film evolve from the earliest stages of idea brainstorming through the entire production process. Students will have the opportunity to try out every role as well, learning how to create a screenplay, organize and direct a production, run camera, lighting and sound equipment and edit video and sound.

The program runs for 6 weeks with two, 2-hour sessions each week for a total of 12 sessions. The program will end with a Red Carpet event for filmmakers to showcase their film to 
friends and family.

About the Instructor: Marc Bonaguide
I am a licensed clinical social worker and member of the State Bar in Connecticut. I studied both sociology and filmmaking at Boston College and have taught filmmaking to students in a school setting for fifteen years. I have recently incorporated filmmaking into my private practice in Canton and have been excited to offer a number of different formats and programs. I have always found film, and the filmmaking process, to be an engaging, powerful (and fun) tool to help students explore their creativity, build self-confidence and learn important problem-solving and communication skills. My programs offer a supportive and inclusive environment for students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn the filmmaking process.
