Film Camp In A Box

Do you know what's better than watching movies at home? MAKING movies at home!

With Film Camp In A Box, you receive everything you need to bring your imagination to life delivered right to your home*. These two-day programs provide all the hardware, software, and live instruction that you'll need to create your masterpiece.

Just in time for Halloween

Join us this Halloween season for two days of mystery, suspense and intrigue as you and your favourite crew members work together to create your very own Halloween themed movie from the comfort of your own home. Our staff will deliver all of the equipment, including a Mac Book, HD camera, tripod, green screen and boom mic to your front door.  Our expert filmmaker will mentor your aspiring director through the movie-making process with up to five hours of synchronous online instruction. Movies will be automatically entered in our 2021 Screams in A Box Film Festival and judged by internationally acclaimed filmmakers from The George Romero Foundation. Prizes will be awarded to finalists on Oct 30, 2021

* This program is available in the broader GTHA area: between Waterloo and Oshawa, as far north as Newmarket and as far south as Hamilton.
