Young filmmakers can learn the craft Special To The Star-news | Sat, May 28 2011 12:00 PM

Media Arts Center San Diego, producers of the San Diego Latino Film Festival, now offers Summer Youth Media & Tech Camps, to help usher in a new generation of filmmakers. The Summer Youth Media & Tech Camps are weeklong sessions, which run for eight weeks, from June 27 until August 19. Bridgepoint Education will be providing scholarships to 10 local children!

Our camps teach campers how to collaborate with each other using media and technology arts, while engaging with others in an increasingly connected world. Learning these basic media tools in a fun and collective environment provides our campers with skills to utilize the newest media technologies in a positive and productive way. In turn, it will put them on a path for success in their future careers.

Geared for ages 9-14, they learn about various multi-media practices and software including stop motion animation, movie making, music recording, blogging, and more! These fun-filled camps run Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. with an extended hours option from 3 - 5 p.m. At the end of the week, parents and family members are invited to a private screening of the work created by campers. They also receive a DVD of their work.

"We found the Media Arts Center on a lucky fluke. Wow, what a find! My two kids, ages 11 and 15 participated in the camp where they learned more about video production and the Internet than I have learned in my entire life. The facility has great equipment, computers, etc. and the instructors made the experience exceptional. The kids loved their time at the Center and learned valuable skills. They produced stop motion animation films, created a web page, and posted videos on You Tube. All in all, an awesome experience," says camp parent, William Ortiz.

Cost is $185.00 per one-week session. Discounts are available for multi-camp registrations and siblings. To register go to our website, www.mediaartscenter.org/mediacamp or at Media Arts Center San Diego (2921 El Cajon Blvd., SD, CA 92104).
