Summer Camp Spotlight: Afilm Camp

Afilm Camp offers Ten weeks of summer day camps that gives students the opportunity to participate in making a short film every week.  Our curriculum is designed so that any experience level can participate and have a great week learning about film and culminates each week with an actual film that they were a part of creating.

“We wanted to provide a specialty camp experience at a price that most parents can afford.  We also wanted Afilm Camp to be a legitimate option for your entire summer. We believe that this experience of working on and completing a short film will give students practical knowledge about something that they are very interested in; while also allowing them to have a lot of FUN,” says Afilm Camp co-founder Scott Ross.

“We are pleased to be working with Daniel Wallace, (author of national best selling book Big Fish) this summer to create the short film experience.  Daniel has opened up his volumes of short films to our team to collaborate and create some very imaginative stories! We think that it is amazing that our students this summer will get to be a part of content created by such an amazing and experienced author,” says Matt Bayley, Afilm Camp co- founder.

Afilm Camp will be located at Alabama’s premiere venue for Film Production, Workplay.  Located in beautiful downtown Birmingham, workplay has a 10,000 square foot soundstage that was built with Afilm Camps mission in mind.  “We are excited about this space getting used for what it was designed to do,” says Tom Williams owner of Workplay. A normal day at camp begins with a high-spirited, welcoming staff with a background in children & film.  Your first break out session could be anything from composing your own original monologue to creating from scratch a stop-motion animation to share with your friends & family. Then after lunch it may be time for stunt play to burn off a few calories before going in our 10,000 sq ft indoor sound stage so you can work as a team to construct your very own short film by the end of the week.
