Cinema St. Louis hosts filmmaking camps each summer in conjunction with the St. Louis Public Library and the University City Library.
Camps include classes on animation, stop motion, live action, and documentary, and teach basic filmmaking principles, working through pre-, post-, and general production techniques. Campers will work in groups to visualize, record, and edit complete films.
The camps are free but advance registration is required. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, but preference is given to first-time enrollees, so early application is encouraged.
