The boarding/overnight version of McCallie C.A.V.E. Film Camp provides a week of filmmaking fun and learning for boys.
C.A.V.E. Center for Animation, Video and Entertainment
The camp is held at McCallie School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The facilities include air-conditioned dorm rooms, 14 indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a Sports & Activities Center (SAC), outdoor pool, and full dining facilities. The SAC contains an indoor pool, four basketball courts, a 200m indoor track, table tennis, air hockey, a viewing room and game room. Campers will have use of these facilities during free time. All free-time activities will be well-supervised by our staff.
In this hands-on workshop using state of the art digital equipment and facilities of the McCallie C.A.V.E., students will conceive and produce short dramatic films working in small teams. Each day will be devoted to a different aspect of filmmaking: writing, planning, shooting, editing and finishing. At the end of the week, there will be a world premiere screening with families invited to attend in our 4K 7.1 surround sound theater.
Taught by a veteran award-winning filmmaker and film educator, McCallie’s Dave Porfiri, this workshop will expose students to the nuts and bolts of the filmmaking process while challenging them to think like visual storytellers.
McCallie’s new Center for Animation, Video and Entertainment (C.A.V.E.) is an unparalleled resource for boys with an interest in video production, editing, sound design and more. With a fully-equipped cyclorama studio, edit and color grading suite, audio recording facility and high-end computers, McCallie students can push their creative energies to the limit.
