Movie Making


Session Description:
Ever want to make an actual movie? In the NERDIES™ Movie Making session you will do just that. You will learn all aspects of what it takes to make a film and create something awesome. Come be a part of something that will last forever and bring your incredible talents to help make it happen.

Parent Description:
Kids in this session will team up with their peers to work through all aspects of movie making. These include idea generation, writing, character development, storyboarding, acting, filming, and post-production. While the ultimate goal is to teach the kids how to create a film, they will learn additional, invaluable skills that will help them be successful in any industry later in life: team work, project management, creative thinking, communication, and exposure to new technologies.



NERDIES™ Summer Sessions will be held Monday - Friday. Start times vary depending on locations. Lunch will be provided at The New School location only.

A NON-REFUNDABLE payment is required to hold your spot for NERDIES™ Summer Sessions.  In the event your child is unable to attend the payment can be applied to future NERDIES™ offerings.

Minimum of 5 students required, maximum of 12 students total
