Film Exploration is a two-week immersion into the world of film production. Students will work alongside their peers and industry professionals gaining insight into cinematic arts while also experiencing a taste of independent living in a supported environment.
Join us from July 9-22 for this residential film exploration program. Tuition includes the cost of housing, meals, use of equipment and software, along with some recreational activities. Travel costs and weekly spending money are separate.
Due to limited space, interested students are encouraged to begin the application process as soon as possible before we reach capacity. Prospective students are interviewed and accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
In addition to their immersion into the film industry, students will receive social coaching and instruction woven through exciting group activities, such as a networking gala, ‘That’s a Wrap’ party, and red-carpet Oscar Ball.
