Making Movies Together

What makes a Digistars® Make-a-Movie Workshop experience so magical?

Our filmmaking programs are designed to engage elementary and middle schoolers in a real movie production process. Very few moviemaking programs in the entire country target kids in grades 1 through 8, but our instructors are trained to guide our young students from envisioning and developing their stories to bringing them to life on screen.

Whether it’s in an after-school enrichment program, a single-day vacation camp during the school year, or a full week of summer camp, students emerge with a complete movie and a sense of achievement from seeing their tangible results.

Quality moviemaking demands real-world production skills that carry over into the academic realm and beyond, and kids learn without realizing they are taking part in a learning experience.

But mostly we are about FUN! What could be more fun than making a movie with friends?! Be sure to check out our SHOWCASE of student films to see what kids as young as six can create, and get a sneak peek into how our programs work with behind-the-scenes videos of our moviemaking programs!

STILL NOT CONVINCED?

“My son loved the Claymation workshop so much he still talks about it several weeks later. He really enjoyed being able to create the characters, write the story, and produce the end product in such a short period of time. I was incredibly impressed with the quality of the production and the professionalism of the teachers, and we already signed up for a week-long summer workshop.” ~ Megan Zacher, mom of Zander (1st grade)
