IFP Summer Camps 2016: Music Video Production (ages 13-17)
Starts August 1
Monday–Friday, August 1–5, 12–4 pm
Students in will team up to create an original music video for a local band. Learn the process from ideation to production to post—by doing it yourself! Along the way, students will learn the history of music videos, view and critique seminal videos, and gain a greater understanding of the genre’s larger impact on contemporary filmmaking.
