Do you think a filmmaking or animation camp would be of interest to your child? If you said “yes,” then we have an exciting new camp for you this summer! It’s called Incrediflix. Our film-making and animation camp is a hands on movie-making program, and we are focused on creativity, imagination and teamwork. Students work together as they have to brainstorm, storyboard, film and do voice-overs with each other. In film making camps, kids will location scout, act, film and learn film making strategies. Incrediflix and Staten Island Academy has teamed up this summer to offer a specialized stop motion animation and filmmaking specialty camp. Now in their eleventh year working within summer day camps in the metro area, Incrediflix knows the grounds and facilities at Staten Island Academy makes for a great “movie set!” Every movie gets edited by a pro, and each camper completes the camp experience with a movie of their own. Join us this summer. Lights, camera, action!
