Camps


 

In our unique Movie Arts© program, students learn the art of filmmaking through hands-on experience, active collaboration, and teamwork. Our students learn story creation, pre-production planning, on-set job roles, and production shooting. Further focused studies dive deeper into the technical aspects of filmmaking such as camera work, lighting, acting and editing, as well as costume and prop design.

Our Movie Arts© curriculum guides children (grades 4th-8th) through the complete moviemaking experience, wrapped up with a special screening of the students’ finished film, for friends and family members at our studio in DUMBO. Each camp gives attendees the opportunity to be part of a creative team and experience working on a real movie set!

We provide:

  • Experienced film technicians and teachers who will guide campers through story creation, production planning, filming, and editing. (Minimum 2 adult staff leaders per group of 12 students.)
  • Professional equipment and materials in a fully equipped production studio.
  • Craft Service - Healthy snacks provided all day. Please let us know of allergies in advance so that we can accommodate all of our campers' needs. NOTE: Lunch not provided; please provide a bagged lunch for your child.

Master Class

We welcome all Automatic Studios Alumni, ages 10 and up, to apply to our Master Class Program. Please let us know what technical focus your child is most interested in: Camera Dept., A.D., Costume, Sound, Hair & Makeup. Of course, everyone will get a chance to rotate jobs but we have noticed that each child, of course, gravitates to specific roles. We want to give each kid the opportunity to grow and improve their skills in this more in-depth program. We are looking to build a strong and complete crew!
