IMS hosted a film camp from July 7 to July 17, led by IMS faculty film instructor Tom McGlone. The objective was to teach kids the process of film making using the facilities of Indian Mountain School, including professional camera, sound, lighting and editing equipment. Students shared responsibilities as director, camera operator, gaffer, sound and boom operator, performer. and editor. It was wonderful to see the students gravitate towards their preferred technical specialty, whether it was as editor, camera operator or director. Over the course of the two weeks, students completed three film projects, including the final project entitled “Thoughts” and another called “Hide & Seek”. At the end of the camp, each student received a burned DVD of their films.
