Small Classroom



Learn how to shoot and edit with the one camera everyone has on them all the time - their smartphone. There has never been a better time to be a creator because you literally have a movie studio in your pocket.

In this camp, we’ll learn different techniques to get professional-looking video out of a mobile device. We will cover lighting, cinematic camera angles, sound, camera movements, basic editing, and more. We will put all of the skills together to replicate a scene from a movie or television show.


  • For students ages 12-18.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Registration closes Monday, July 3.
  • There is a $20 materials fee included in the cost of the class.
