Make a movie at the museum
CUDDEBACKVILLE, NY — Make your own summer blockbuster at the Neversink Valley Museum, 26 Hoag Rd. Kids ages 10 to 14 will learn how to create a movie using a smartphone or an iPad during two sessions held on July 16 to 20 or August 13 to 17, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The fee for each session is $100 for museum members, $125 for non-museum members, which includes a one-year membership.
The museum will take participants through the entire process of what goes into making a short movie, using a smartphone/iPad as the camera. Learn how to develop characters, write a script, draw up a storyboard and set up shots, shoot the movie and more. On the last day of camp, there will be a festival potluck picnic. Participants will also discover Orange County’s early film days, when D.W. Griffith came to Cuddebackville to shoot some pre-Hollywood classics. Participants can bring their own smartphone/iPad or share. A full week commitment is needed by participants due to the nature of the project. Visit www.neversinkmuseum.org or call 845/754-8870.
