It's Time To Go To Camp!

Whenever I tell someone that E Video Productions, LLC is offering a Summer Camp this year, the first thing they always ask is, "what made you decide to do that?" Well, it's a bit of a story, so I figured a blog was a good place to tell it...

E Video Productions, LLC has always been a "teaching" studio. We have developed a great intern program and have at least two interns every summer, with occasional interns throughout the year. Some of our best team members started out as interns! When we hire, we often encourage unlikely candidates, because we believe that it is important to teach others in order to learn more yourself. We find our crew grows whenever we need to teach someone something new. So since we've been teaching 20-somethings for the past 10 or so years, a youth program was the next step!

Now, teaching youngsters is nothing new at EVP. We have hosted many Girl, Cub and Boy Scout troops through the years. Our favorite activity is setting up a mock interview and allowing them to work all aspects of the production. We have also spoken at career day at our own kids' school for the past 6 years.

Earlier this year, I was looking for summer programs for my 11-year-old son. He is interested in audio production and performance, so I thought a technical program would be great for him. The problem is, there's nothing like that in Ocean County! After doing some research, I decided, let's start one!

The program we have this summer is designed with my 11-year-old in mind, although, not all of our programs interest him. We decided to open it up to students entering 4th through 9th grades. For one, it keeps the group of kids within a similar age bracket (even though we could offer activities for younger and older groups as well), so that they can work together on projects. But we feel that age group is at the perfect stage of beginning to show interest in video production, but not necessarily exposed to much outside of YouTube yet.

CampEVP is designed to be a 1 to 4 week program. If you choose just one week, you get a full experience in the one task you are looking to learn. But if you choose all four weeks, you will see a project in its entirety - from conceptualization to completion! Week one is Writing For Screen, Week Two is Acting For Screen, Week Three is Shooting and Week Four is Editing! Whew, that's a lot for just one month of the summer!

We are so excited for our first week coming up on August 1, 2016. There are still spots available, but you need to act fast before they are all gone... visit http://www.evideoproductions.net/Camp.html.

See you at Camp!
