RDC Teen Film Camp set to begin

RDC will once again be home to young film students, video game designers and animation creators from across the province who will tell their stories at the annual Teen Film, Game Design and Animation camps July 8 - 14.

The unique experience at the Teen Film Camp will allow students to work side-by-side with some of Alberta’s finest actors, filmmakers, programmers and instructors while transforming a narrative into film. With an exciting and intensive hands-on approach, students will immerse themselves in movie exploration while learning the basics on how to produce, direct, shoot, write, act and edit their own short films all based on a super heroes theme. The set is pre-constructed and ready for action, and students will experience what it’s like on a professional shoot.

The Game Design workshop will encourage students to plan and create their own video games. Teens will work with a group of programmers and artists to develop their own video games by learning effective writing and designing techniques using the Unity toolset. Included in this hands-on and practical workshop are story and character development, production, strategy and level designs, scripting, animation, interfaces, mobile gaming and more.

In the Animation camp, students will tell stories using Maya, the industry standard for high-end 3D computer animation, effects and modeling. Through motion and rendering exercises, participants will complete a collection of distinct animations that include sound. 

Students will share their projects with family, friends and the public on Saturday, July 14, at 10:00 am in the Margaret Parsons Theatre at RDC. Audience members will receive free admission.
