The University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film will host a 100% online summer film camp for teens, ages 14-18, interested in learning the basics of filmmaking.

Scheduled from Monday, July 19, through Friday, July 30, the Virtual Filmmaker Summer Film Intensive is a two-week virtual filmmaking summer camp for teens looking to grow their narrative video-making skills.

Upon successful completion of the camp, participants will be able to:

•  Articulate the components of story, character and narrative, and the effectiveness of communicating visually;

•  Conceive, design, and communicate a story cinematically employing practical filmmaking techniques; and

•  Demonstrate production etiquette and communication necessary to collaboratively produce a film.

The workshop will include:

•  Short script writing

•  Character development

•  Cinematography essentials

•  Practical lighting

The registration deadline for the Virtual Filmmaker Summer Film Intensive is Monday, July 5.
