Earn 4 high school credits through SelfDesign High (not Selkirk College)
Grade 10, 11, 12 participants who reside in BC
During the first week of this hands-on program participants pitch, script, direct, and produce their own short films using professional camera and sound gear. Once production is complete, the focus turns to editing, where participants learn advanced editing techniques using Final Cut Pro and create an original soundtrack using Soundtrack Pro. A short internship is made available during the second week for participants who would like to work alongside a professional filmmaker to gain experience on the set or in the field. An emphasis on collaboration, responsibility and critical thinking run through all aspects of this intensive two week program. Participants do not need any gear or equipment to participate.
$400 for participants going into Grade 10, 11 and 12 who reside in BC.
$700 for all other participants. Subsidies available upon request. Please ask when you call to register. All camera equipment and editing software is provided. Participants may chose to bring their own camera to use.
HIGH SCHOOL PARTICIPANTS – READ THIS CAREFULLY
Those participants who want to earn high school credit must register for the course with SelfDesign High and through Selkirk College/Kootenay School for the Arts. Follow steps here:
- Step One – for participants that are new to SelfDesign High you must first enroll in the school (this does not effect your current school enrollment.) Visit http://www.selfdesignhigh.org/enroll.html or call 250 354-1310 to enroll.
- Step Two – register for the film camp program. Enrollment at SelfDesign High is not the same as registering for a particular course, such as film camp.
- Step Three – Register for the film camp program through Selkirk College/Kootenay School of the Arts. Call the office at 352-2821 to ensure you are on the list for the program. They will also take your payment. If you have enrolled and registered with Self Design High your payment for the program will be $400. Please inform the administrative staff with whom you register that you have already contacted Self Design High.
The subsidy is offered as needed to everyone that registers for the film camp. Upon registering for your particular program, you must let the administrative staff at Selkirk College/Kootenay School of the Arts know that you need a subsidy. For the one week program, there is $50 subsidy and for the two-week program we offer a $100 subsidy on the full price of the program (not for the participants registered through Self-Design at $400.)
Parents who register more than one participant in a family automatically receive a $50 discount on each additional child.
