Have you ever wondered what teenagers do during the summer these days? The local pools aren’t packed to capacity; the streets aren’t lined with kids on bikes or mopeds or “brand new” hoopty cars (I’m dating myself with that terminology). The fact is, high school students that aren't fully immersed in sports or pre-collegiate programs have all the time in the world on their hands and no idea what to do with it.
Luckily, the arts are still a viable means of productively occupying time, expanding creative thought processes, and teaching new skills! This summer, local arts education provider, Sowartist LLC and local playhouse, Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square have teamed up to offer a two-week film camp for rising 9th through 12th grade students. The Young FilmMakers Intensive will teach the art of film storytelling, coming from the authentic voices of the teens themselves. They will pitch, write, produce, and edit group films from June 12th – June 23rd, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., and present a world premiere of their films on Saturday, June 24th, at 7:00 p.m.
If you have or know students who may be interested, please call the box office at Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square, 770-426-4800 or register directly at https://youngfilmmakersintensive.eventbrite.com. All questions about the camp can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
