Filmmaking Camps

Cinema St. Louis hosts free filmmaking camps for kids ages 12-18 during the summer. Filmmaking Camps will take place from Monday, July 24, through Friday, July 28, 2017, and Monday, July 31, through Friday, August 4, 2017, at the St. Louis Public Library's Central Library (1301 Olive St., 63101). There are three classes available, live-action, documentary and animation.

Camps will teach basic filmmaking principles, working through pre-, post-, and general production techniques. Campers will work in groups to visualize, record, and edit complete films in both Live Action and Documentary styles, while Animation campers will work in several styles of animation.

The camps are free; admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, but preference is given to first-time enrollees, so early application is encouraged. Presented in collaboration with the St. Louis Public Library, Webster University, and Lindenwood University. For more information, contact Brian Spath at Cinema St. Louis:
