Summer Camps hosted by AUTOMATIC STUDIOS

Automatic Studios is an interactive community where kids learn the art and technical skills of moviemaking. Students become part of a creative team and experience working on a real movie set. With workshops and week-long camps, students ages 8-14 learn scriptwriting, pre-production planning, on-set job roles, studio and location production, and editing. In short, everything you need to know to make a live-action film! All Automatic Studios programs are taught and managed by experienced film industry professionals and conducted in a fully outfitted production studio. Each camp week ends with a screening for friends and family in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
