Students will create a short film using green screen, special effects, animation and more and then promote that film creating movie posters, a DVD cover and other promotional items.

The camp, which is for students between the ages of 9 and 16, will be held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at a location in downtown Newhall. The cost is $465. For information or registration, call festival director Ramon Hamilton at 661-600-6320 or email rhamilton@scvfilmfestival.com.

For additional information about all of the programs offered by Generation Arts, please visit www.generationarts.org.

And secondly – submissions for the Seventh Annual SCV Film Festival are now being accepted. Hamilton suggests that filmmakers submit now to qualify for a low “early bird” rate, which is available until July 15. Also this year, there are reduced rates for high school filmmakers.

To submit, go to their website here or go directly to WithoutABox.
