From how-to videos, product reviews, and cooking shows, to tv series, news broadcasts, and gamer videos, the CK team will teach your child the tools necessary to create content for their favorite social platforms. Professional teaching artists work closely with your child, building skills to create videos that they care about. We will answer your child’s technical questions one-on-one, and set them up for success on their channel! For those interested, we will cover branding, making your videos searchable, and the steps to gaining thousands of followers. CinemaKidz will also spend a good deal of time discussing online presence, responsibility, privacy concerns, and general safety. A great camp for beginners as well as the more advanced influencer.

Come explore various techniques of stop-motion animation in our week long animation-workshop!

Campers build mini-movie sets and learn how to light them, build camera rigs, use gels and create various on-set effects. We encourage children to experiment with different camera angles, add special effects, sounds and music. Children build their own props and use green screens to bring their ideas to life.
