Did You Get That on Film? 
Don’t settle for shaky, amateur phone videos. Technology has advanced so far that you’re almost carrying a miniature film studio in your pocket. We’ll work with the built-in camera on your cell phone to capture better videos, and once you’re on your way to becoming a bona fide film producer, we’ll incorporate using apps for even more special effects. Bring a friend or the whole family for this week-long summer class — all you need is a smart phone with a camera.
