Ever wonder how Steven Spielberg or Peter Jackson started making movies? As kids—inspired by Hollywood films of their time—they began by making short 8mm films with their friends, after school and on the weekends. As they grew up, their passions for storytelling turned into hobbies, and their hobbies turned into $200 million Studio films!
Camp RED offers a hybrid of education and fun; campers will learn the magic of movie-making while participating in the every-day activities of an exciting, care-free summer camp, all while shooting on the same 5k RED EPIC cameras that Peter Jackson used on The Hobbit—and even in 3D!
Camp RED offers a third week sleep-away camp at Camp JCA Shalom in Malibu. We will continue the movie-making experience on-location in the forests near the Californian coast, where the campers will shoot an extended short film as a crew.
While breaking from technology to enjoy American outdoor traditions, campers will share bunk-beds in cabins, eat together in at the dining hall, and keep busy during the day with group building, horseback riding, high ropes, swimming, outdoor skills development, songs, skits, and campfires.
****All campers will sign up to attend both weeks of day camp. They will spend the two weeks producing their films for a final Film Festival on Friday August 2nd, 2013. We invite all parents, guardians and siblings to attend the festival.****
