    Choosing the right filmmaking camp for your child

    What’s the best way to choose the right filmmaking camp for your child? First, think more seriously about them: their age, experience, interests, and goals. 

    • Is your child aiming to just learn the basics of filmmaking? Or are they looking to take an important step towards a career in this field? 
    • Do they want to focus on a specific area of filmmaking, such as cinematography? Or are they looking to acquire a more general background?

    Then, of course, you should look closely at the camps themselves. Talk to directors and staff, and visit camps whenever possible. For instance, if it’s a camp focusing on visual storytelling, you may ask the following questions:

    • How do you teach visual storytelling?
    • Is there a specific approach you use?
    • Does my child need any specific background in this area?
    • How might this skill help my child?
    • What careers might this skill provide the basis for?
