Sign up for teen video boot camp

Are you ready for your directorial debut? Teen Video Boot Camp is for youth ages 12 – 17 who are interested in learning how to make videos. The program is free and gives participants a chance to learn about production from professional videographers from Bloomington Community Access Television and Southwest Community Television in Edina. In one week, students will learn how to use professional video production equipment and produce a short film as a team. The camp earned high marks from teens who participated last year. 

“I liked learning about how to film and learning about sequencing and shots,” Anjali said. “It was fun to get a taste of behind-the-scenes work on a movie.” 

Three camps are scheduled for this summer: June 10 – 14, July 15 – 19, and August 12 – 16 and will be held at Civic Plaza, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road. Each session runs from 1 – 4 p.m. all week and will end with a screening of films for students and parents on the last day. For more information or to sign up, contact Communications Specialist Ben Vinar at 952-563-4980 or bvinar@bloomingtonmn.gov. There are a limited number of spots available, so sign up today!
