2016 TEEN FILM CAMP

 

Our 2016 Teen Film Camp will be held from June 27 through July 1. The mission of the camp is to teach teens to be able to write, shoot and edit their own films without making major mistakes. Films made at camp should be good enough for students to include them in college applications.

 

Film Camp will be held for five full days at the Cape May City Elementary School. Professional instructors supported by full time volunteers will teach up to twenty five teens the fundamentals of filmmaking. Students will be divided into groups of four to five, each with its own instructor. Each group will write, film and edit a short film. Hands-on experience will be provided in screenwriting, storyboarding, acting, directing, cinematography and editing. On Friday evening the students and their families and friends will watch the completed films.

 

Tuition will be $225.00 for the week, and as always, we will accept students for camp on a first-come, first-served basis. Because we expect more applicants than we can accept, we advise interested families to apply early.

Saturday Night: Rosewater

 

Directed by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart

 

 

 

On Saturday night, three journalists who’ve reported from Iran – two of whom were unjustly arrested and imprisoned in Tehran – presented Jon Stewart’s highly acclaimed film Rosewater, the dramatic retelling of the arrest and jailing of Newsweek’s Maziar Bahari in 2009.

 

After the film, the journalists talked about the movie, about their own experiences in Iran, and about the changing nature of the U.S.-Iran relationship. Roxana Saberi, an American citizen reporting from Tehran, was arrested and sentenced to eight years in prison. Omid Memarian, an Iranian journalist, was imprisoned, subjected to torture and held in solitary confinement until his release. Chairing the panel was Bob Dreyfuss, a veteran journalist for Rolling Stone, who has reported from inside Iran.
