Who can attend the Filmmakers Boot Camp?

Any teen or young adult with disabilities between the ages of 15 and 22.

Why this Camp?

You get to shoot and edit with professional equipment.

You get to learn from industry pros.

You decide, with your crew, what position each of you takes to write, plan, shoot and edit your own 5-minute film.

You get to choose what kind of film you want to produce.

When Is It?

July 23 to August 3, 2018.

July 23rd to 27th you’ll train at the ADAPT offices • 1100 S IH 35 Frontage Rd • Austin, TX • 78704

July 30th to August 3rd you and your crew go on location at Kerbey Lane Cafe • 2606 Guadalupe • Austin • 78705  that serves as your production office and set if you wish. 

August 4th screen your film at your red carpet premiere! Location TBD

Does It Matter What I Wear?

Yes! Please wear practical clothes and shoes for a film set. Tube tops, open-toed shoes, short skirts or really baggy pants can be impractical and unsafe on location.

So please wear close-toed shoes and the same kind of clothes you’d wear to school.

How Much Does It Cost?

The Filmmakers Boot Camp is just $250 for the 2-week camp. This includes daily snacks and lunches!
