New Summer Camp for Teenage Filmmakers

Hands-on Production Experience at Tower & Smith Rock
$100 Discount Extended to Thursday, June 18.

Summit to the Sea Media Arts Experience, in collaboration with the Tower Theatre Foundation, is launching a film production summer camp for teenagers ages 13 to 17. During the two weeks June 22-July 2 they will learn professional editing, audio, and camera operation techniques. The young moviemakers will work in small groups to conceptualize, produce, shoot and edit their own documentary and outdoor adventure film.

Workshops will be held at the Tower in downtown Bend. The films will be shot on-location at Smith Rock State Park and “premiere” on the Tower Theatre’s big screen during the final day of the camp.

Eric Lindstrom, filmmaker and founder of Summit to the Sea, said, “This is a rare opportunity for teenagers who have experience in video production to learn from area professionals and take their skills to the next level. And what better way than outdoors during the summer in Central Oregon!”

This inaugural film camp is part of the Tower’s award-winning LessonPLAN (Performing Live Arts Now) educational programming, and is partially underwritten by the Tower’s Stover Fund.

Participants must provide their own camera and laptop computer. All registrants receive a camp T-shirt and a complimentary ticket to the Teton Gravity Research Film Festival at the Tower June 25.

The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to be the leading performing arts organization, providing cultural and education programs that make an essential contribution to Central Oregon’s lifestyle.
