Behind the Scenes at Summer Camp

This summer we held two sessions of Video Production Camp for youth ages 9-13 and each of them was a blast! Session One ended on July 3rd with the premiere of "Mitchell," a short film about a chronically disorganized student. We interviewed campers about their experience in making the short film, and what it was like to take a production from start to finish.

First Day of Camp

Today is the first day of our Youth Video Production Camp! Over the course of the next week and a half, participants ages 9 to 14 will learn to use AIM’s field cameras, microphones and lights, and will use them to transform a script into a short movie.
