St. Petersburg, FL (April 1, 2009) - The Sunscreen Film Festival will present a two-week summer camp program that will teach kids how to conceive, write, shoot and edit movies. The camp will end with a mini-festival to showcase the creative output of the campers.

The camp will meet at Studio 620, located at 620 First Ave. South in St. Petersburg. It will run Monday through Friday, from July 6th  to July 17th from 9am-5pm. The cost for the instruction and special equipment is $500.00.

“A kid with a camera and a passion can bring a special energy to film,” said Tony Armer, Executive Director of the Sunscreen Film Festival. “We want to provide youngsters with the knowledge to create good work with a beginning, a middle and an end that the audience can't wait to see.”
In the first week of the camp, students will study the story structure that makes films compelling. They will use exercises to create and try short vignettes to learn what works and what doesn't. They will also take an immersion course in cinematography with instructors demonstrating and sharing setting camera angles, lighting, and sound issues that the students will face when making their movies.

The first three days of the second week will be for shooting film. The instructors will divide the class into teams, with each team shooting its own original film. During the last two days students edit the movies and prepare them for exhibition. Finally, on the last day of camp, the students will show their movies to family and friends at the camp film festival.
