Animation: Participants will be situated in one of our state-of-the-art Animation Labs and be guided in using 2D Animation software to explore a few of the 12 Animation Principles.  No animation experience necessary, just a willingness to try it out! 

Visual Effects (VFX): Students will get an introduction to After Effects where they’ll get the chance to animate text in 3D space.


Costuming: Students will dress up with costumes pieces provided from the Costume Department’s stock to create well known characters from film and theatre. 

Camera (Cinematography): A basic lighting demonstration on a set will give an overview to creating a mood. Once the mood is established, the attendees will be put to work as actors, camera operators, dolly grips and focus pullers using industry standard equipment to shoot a scene. As an integral part of the team, the attendees will also be able to experience the sound mixer/boom positions of a film set.
