  • TV vs. movies
  • Character development
  • Sound production
  • Marketing and distribution

Beyond these, there are numerous other potential perks of these camps. They include:

Choosing the right filmmaking camp for your child

What’s the best way to choose the right filmmaking camp for your child? First, think more seriously about them: their age, experience, interests, and goals. 

  • Is your child aiming to just learn the basics of filmmaking? Or are they looking to take an important step towards a career in this field? 
  • Do they want to focus on a specific area of filmmaking, such as cinematography? Or are they looking to acquire a more general background?

Then, of course, you should look closely at the camps themselves. Talk to directors and staff, and visit camps whenever possible. For instance, if it’s a camp focusing on visual storytelling, you may ask the following questions:

  • How do you teach visual storytelling?
  • Is there a specific approach you use?
  • Does my child need any specific background in this area?
  • How might this skill help my child?
  • What careers might this skill provide the basis for?
