The El Paso Community Foundation’s Plaza Classic Film Camp, sponsored by One Source Federal Credit Union, will be bigger and better this summer.
The third annual camp will offer separate two-week camps — one for animation; the other for live-action filmmaking.
The concurrent camps will run weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 31-August 4 and August 7-11 at the El Paso Public Library Main Branch, 501 N. Oregon, in downtown El Paso.
Enrollment is open to children between the ages of 9 and 16.
Experienced faculty will focus on the fundamentals of filmmaking. During the two-week intensive camp, students will learn to conceive, write, storyboard, shoot and edit their own films.
Their finished movies will be shown in a free, public program during the 10th annual Plaza Classic Film Festival August 3-13 in downtown El Paso.
Tuition is $300 through July 16, 2017; $325 from July 17-23, 2017. Tuition includes materials, lunch, snacks and t-shirts. Applicants are asked to submit short videos or essays about why they want to participate in the Plaza Classic Film Camp.
Thanks to One Source Federal Credit Union, scholarships will be available to children who qualify based on income.
