The summer is off to a great start here at Light House! Our first Intro to Filmmaking session of the summer began last week with a film scavenger hunt – students followed clues and practiced new camera shot techniques.

After getting some of the basics of filmmaking down, on Wednesday students were split into groups and began writing their own short films! In the afternoon they presented their ideas to the rest of the class.

After a great week the campers were finally prepared to present their short films. The newly renovated Vinegar Hill Theatre serves as the perfect place for the screening. Campers did a great job answering the audience’s questions.
