What Will Film Camp Be Like?

You’ll join a team and spend five days making a short film. Each team will be led by a current Taylor film student as the team’s producer, and a Taylor faculty member will serve as the team’s executive producer. Previous experience is welcome, but Film Camp is open to everyone. As a team, you will:

  • Write a story that entertains and inspires an audience
  • Format your story using professional scriptwriting software
  • Storyboard the film, imagining the visuals that can bring it to life
  • Scout/find the perfect filming locations 
  • Shoot the scenes using professional equipment and local actors (or act in your film if acting is one of your interests). Get familiar with the RED Weapon 8K camera.
  • Capture great sound on location
  • Gain understanding of editing software, editing the footage with your teammates
  • Add music, graphics and closing credits
  • Help design your film's poster
  • Screen the film in front of an audience on the last day

Faith in Action at Film Camp

Taylor’s film camp will encourage high school students to think about how filmmaking, storytelling and relationships with film teammates can give glory to God and serve as growing experiences for your Christian faith. Faculty will make meaningful connections between faith and film, exploring how the two are connected and how your student can use the creative gifts they’ve been given by God in ways that honor God.
