In the Music Video Program (MVP) campers direct, shoot, and edit a music video! Campers work in crews alongside inspiring female filmmakers to bring their ideas to the big screen! No prior filmmaking experience required!
In one week, campers will form crews, direct a music video for a live-in-person band, learn how to operate professional cameras, edit with cutting-edge software, and finally screen their finished videos in front of a live audience! Each day kicks off with punk-rock yogaerobics to get our bodies moving, an inspired rendition of the camp theme song, “We Rock LA”, and a hilarious yet educational skit by the Famous Rock Camp Skit Time Players.
Each crew will be cheered on by a filmmaking coach, and each crew will have their very own camera mentor and editing mentor, making sure that each camper has plenty of one-on-one time with the gear, and ensuring that there’s always someone close by to answer questions and teach tips and tricks! Every MVP camper will have an opportunity to direct, shoot, and edit.
Days will be spent exploring the cameras and editing software, watching and discussing current music videos, discussing how to use music videos to make social change, meeting real working professionals in the film industry and learning about careers available, brainstorming, and creating music video magic! Workshops at camp may include designing and screen-printing camper crew t-shirts, a “big gear” afternoon, image and identity, and more! At lunch, campers will get to rock out to live music as a guest artist takes the outdoor stage to perform, talk about their work, and take questions from campers. In the afternoon, campers have plenty of time to work on their music videos.
Any self-identified girl between the ages of 12-17 is encouraged to apply. All equipment provided! Bring your awesome!
Below are the music videos conceived, directed, shot, and edited by campers at #MVPLA2016 and #MVPLA2015!
