Filmmakers have always been trying to make impossible realities come to life. Whether it’s magic, spaceships, strange creatures, or other worlds, where there’s a will, there’s a way! In this camp, you will explore the world of visual effects by learning how to re-create the physical effects used to tell stories by filmmakers such as Buster Keaton, Karel Zeman, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas. The week will end with a screening of your films in the cinema for family and friends!
