PELHAM, N.Y. -- The Picture House Regional Film Center in Pelham will give aspiring young filmmakers a chance to make short music films at its Mud Week camps, scheduled for Feb. 20-23.
The camp will offer creative opportunities for kids, whether they like to belt it out in front of a camera or prefer to shine behind the scenes.
Using the hit movie "Sing" as their inspiration, students will create a new music-themed video for each day of camp. After camp week has concluded, TPH’s panel of experts will choose a winning video from each age group, which will play on the main screen before the run of "The Lego Batman Movie" at The Picture House this spring.
Winners will be announced at TBH's student showcase on Saturday, March 25, where all student films from fall and winter semesters will have their moment to shine on the big screen. Parents will also receive a link to each video to share and download at their convenience.
Mud Week is open to students in grades K-2 and 3-5. The camp will run from 9:00 a.m. to noon with an extended day option available.
When choosing the Picture House's extended day option, students may bring their lunch, have some popcorn on TBH, and enjoy watching "Sing" in the main hall, or another children’s movie in the screening room.
The lunch and movie are fully supervised; extended day hours are from 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Mud Week camp is $65/student per class and extended day is $90/student per class.
Picture House members at the Family Level and above receive a10-percent discount.
All classes meet at TBH's theatre at 175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham. Registration is available at http://www.thepicturehouse.org/education/camps-tph/ or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling (914) 738-3161.
