2017 Youth Summer Camps are underway with the last classes wrapping up in early August.
The Digiquest Animation Camps produce a show during each session centering on student’s 2D animation and movie special effects skills. Students bring their artwork to life on screen with the help of Adobe After Effects software. The mid-July camp show follows the trials of dogs, cats, humans and a spaceship.
Students in the TV Studio Production Camp learn how to produce, direct and star in their own TV shows. During a five-day course, students get hands on experience with studio cameras, audio and graphic equipment and shoot three shows. This summer, students created shows serving up trivia with hijinks on “The Cash Cow,”
a drink making competition on “The Orange Show”
and a 2-player video game rivalry on “The Video Game Show.”
