Campers will gain a hands-on understanding of film. The techniques that have produced some of their favorite films will be examined as they craft their very own devices and experiments. Creature creation and special effects will be focused on, while we look at examples from film history and modern productions. Moderate craft skills are suggested as some of the activities may be complicated. Puppets, sculpture and special effects make up - there's enough for any interest level in film.
