Sure everyone wants to make movies but it takes more than a YouTube account and a dad with connections to the cyber police.
Enter the Dallas Film Society.
It's offering a Summer Film Camp for kids 14 to 18 that will show them the ropes of filmmaking. Students will learn about costume, sound and set design, lighting, cinematography and the basics of cinematic storytelling. They'll also get to try out cameras and professional movie editing software.
But if your kid is looking to be the next Martin Scorcese you'll have to get them registered fast; there are only 30 seats at the camp. It runs from July 11 to 15 at the Studios at Las Colinas. Registration is $250 for members of the Dallas Film Society and $275 for everyone else. Consequences will never be the same.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
