Acting, Film, and Storytelling

Dates: TBA, 10:00 am to 3:30 pm

Our primary activities will run from 10am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions as some activities will build from one day to the next. The order of activities may change to accommodate student abilities and weather.

The participants, collectively referred to as “the Cast”, will write, storyboard, direct, produce and film a short movie during the week. Each will receive a copy of the final movie to keep. Parents are invited to the screening at 3pm on the Friday.

In addition to the primary activities, there will be extra time from 9:00 am to 10 am each morning and from 3:30 pm to 5 pm. These times are available by prior arrangement and are purely optional.

Note: This adventure is most suitable for 8 – 16 year olds. We have room for only the first 8 paid participants, so please don’t wait too long and be disappointed when you see all the fun photos.

  • Cost of the whole 27.5 hours is $250, including nutritious lunches, snacks throughout the day, and all admission and transportation fees.
  • Participants can also attend the Gaming Club at no extra cost if they are interested.
  • There is a $50 rebate for students registered with Avante School in the Fall.

In addition to all of the above, there is financial aid available to students in need and who sign up early enough to allow our donors to arrange it.
