Summer Shoots: Movie Making Summer Camps

Action-packed movie making summer camps for children and teenagers, ages 5-18. 

​Young movie makers discover new skills behind and in front of the camera, as they spend a week producing and performing in their own movie masterpiece. 

During the week, they make a completely unique movie from scratch within the week, supported by our team of fun and friendly film workshop leaders.

It’s tons of fun, creative and supports the development of lots of useful skills. Afterwards, they proudly share their films with you in a special Cast and Crew screening event.
