On the Horizon: Summer Filmmaking Experience for Kids
  • July 20-24 from 9AM-1PM; Sign your kids (ages 9-12) up for the Aurora Picture Show filmmaking camp! Aurora's youth filmmaking camp teaches hands-on narrative and experimental techniques using digital video from professional filmmaker, Mike Akel. Campers use the Aurora office and Menil neighborhood to develop, produce and edit their own short films. Working collaboratively on 5-10 minute digital video projects, students are not only exposed to filmmaking techniques but also explore less traditional film and video. Finished films are screened for family and friends at a culminating Friday night showcase at the Aurora Picture Show office.
