Coming this summer...
Ever wish life was ‘just like the movies’? Well now it can be with our cinema camp in California, the home of Hollywood and the biggest cinema industry in the world!

For teens aged 16+

3 week programme

In this camp, we take you behind the camera and let you experience what it’s like to create your very own short film! You’ll get production classes from professional teachers who have worked on Hollywood productions, use of professional camera equipment and, of course, you’ll get to take away your group’s production at the end of it all - oh yeah, and you’ll also learn English and have plenty of fun adventures along the way!

Sounds not bad, right?

Lights, camera, action!

You’ll receive 8 hours of production tuition per week from acclaimed teachers with plenty of hands-on industry experience - past teachers have included Columbia University instructors and directors and technicians who’ve worked on major Hollywood productions, including projects with George Lucas and Tom Cruise!

You’ll be taught how to write and develop a screenplay and draw-up a storyboard, then, once you’ve learned all of the necessary skills, you’ll pack up the cameras and head out for some 'on location' shooting!

Of course, you can’t have a cinema camp in California without heading to Hollywood itself!

Hands on learning and creating your very own production is great, but we know you wanna see where some of your favourite movies came to life, that’s why you’ll be taken on visits to Hollywood and Beverly Hills!

And of course, you'll wanna see where the magic really happens, which is why you’ll visit the following Hollywood production studios:

  • Warner Bros
  • Sony/MGM
  • Paramount
  • Universal Studios

English!

Ever noticed one common theme that ties almost all Hollywood movies together? They’re all in English, of course!

English is not just the language that connects you with your favourite Hollywood movies, it’s the language that connects the world, which is exactly why this camp includes 18 English lessons each week with professional and highly trained American English teachers all ready to teach you how to speak English in that Blockbuster American accent!

But wait, there’s more!
As if just reading all of the above wasn't enough to get you pumping with anticipation and excitement, we have a full excursion and activity programme for you to enjoy as well:

  • Film Screening
  • Hollywood
  • Beverly Hills
  • Cinema makeup workshop
  • Disneyland
  • DJ Dance Party
  • Farewell Party
  • Knott’s Berry Farm (optional)
  • Santa Monica Beach (optional)
  • MLB Baseball Game (optional)
