Woodward West Video Production Camp is an Action Sports Filmmakers dream! Surrounded by the best action sports facilities and athletes on the West coast, we created a weeklong program that gives you the opportunity to build your filmmaking skills and knowledge as you experience what it takes to become an expert. Our instructors help guide your passion and the use of our pro gear and studio in the process of filmmaking.
As a video production camper, your week is based on your individual needs. Working with our professional instructors you will be able to learn basic to professional composition, exposure, focusing, lighting, and video editing. You also have the opportunity to work with some of the current gear in the industry such as track dollies, jib arms, tripods, monitors, green screens, and audio equipment. When it's time to edit, you'll be assigned an Apple Imac computer and will learn the details of the Adobe Production Suite software. You may also get the opportunity to shoot one-on-one with pro athletes to capture the type of edit you've been dreaming to create. Combine all of these skills and showcase your work in our Friday night Digital Media Camp Arts Festival.
