During a four day span from July 9-13, Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Academy students engaged in an intensive AYV Film Camp where they learned how to brainstorm, write, script, shoot, edit, and export original films. Academy students from 6 different artistic disciplines collaborated in a breakthrough learning experience that introduced them to new production skills and pushed their understanding of artistic process to a new level. With the guidance of the Academy teaching staff, this interactive camp enabled youth to explore and comment on their world through state of the art multimedia tools. In addition to developing technical skills, this experience served as a perfect vehicle for students to create new friends, collaborate across artistic disciplines, and to set a foundation for the weeks to follow. As the first week during our four week summer programs, the Film Camp was a great success!
