2012 ASU Summer Student Moviemaking Camp

(Commuter Students Only)


         The 2012 ASU Summer Student Movie-Maker Camp is primarily designed to provide a “hands-on” narrative film experience for high-school students and teachers who want to increase their knowledge of basic screenwriting, producing, directing, cinematography, lighting, and editing skills.  The camp will be under the supervision of Gary Jones, a veteran (49 years and still counting) filmmaker who has worked in all film formats—from 8mm to 65mm film —and most current high-definition digital cinema formats.


            Responding to feedback from last year’s inaugural group of students and teachers, the 2012 Moviemaking Camp will have less talk and more action.  Pre-production and script ideas will be handled via email prior to our Sunday, July 29th so that Camp participants can “hit the ground running”.  (Let’s face it.  The only way to learn how to make movies—is to MAKE movies.)  The ASU Dept of Radio-TV Narrative Film program will provide all equipment necessary, although students are also welcome to bring their own HDSLRs and laptops.
