    In this course, our main focus is the scripting, story boarding, testing, and overall creative process that occurs in order to make a movie. Throughout the week, we will individually learn about these different techniques and steps that Hollywood-level directors go through in order to make the movies we all know and love. Whether it be through drawing scenes, writing a script, or even watching a film itself about this process, campers will creatively engage in this course, with their imaginations being the key to it all. There is no limit to creativity in this course, as we will be also exploring all types of genres - from action, to comedy, to fiction, and even some horror; the possibilities are endless.
