Introduction to Video Production Camp


We are excited to offer a new one-week specialty camp for our 7th,8th and 9th grade campers this summer! We will be partnering with our neighbors, Midpen Media, to offer an Introduction to Video Production Camp. 


Our one-week Intro to Video Production Camp provides a hands-on opportunity to learn the ins and outs of creating television in our professional studio from concept to completed show. Together, we'll practice:


  • Designing sets
  • Operating cameras
  • Controlling sound
  • Creating live graphics
  • Directing a team of peers to bring your ideas to life
  • Acting in front of the camera


Previous classes have produced game shows, sitcoms, talent and variety shows, and discussions about local youth-related issues. Once students complete this training, they are encouraged to come back and participate throughout the school year in real television productions&nndash;both of their own design and under the direction of influential local producers.


Dates: July 22–26
Time: 10:00 AM–4:00 PM
Fee: $499
Please note: This camp will be jointly run and supervised by OFJCC and Midpen Media Staff. Campers will be dropped off and picked up at the OFJCC each day.
