We're talking bonafide rockstar music videos! This is where it all begins. Picture this- your kid stars as the musician, director, actor AND producer in their very own, digitally-produced, full-feature music video. Cool, huh? Taught by Tierra Linda's innovative, award-winning band director, Joe Murphy, this camp simulates a whole music creation studio where kids learn to record music digitally using live and software-generated instruments. They learn best practices of form and composition to enable them to write a quality piece of music. Once they create the audio portion, the second half of camp is dedicated to the design and technical production of the video. They will create and write their own storyboard, select the location of their shoot, record the action, then bring it all into the computer to digitally align their music with the key points of action in their video. Sometimes the kids turn these into commercials, instructional videos or simply their own artistic expression. Using GarageBand, Apple's whole music creation studio along with iMovie, this Music Video Camp introduces real world technology, audio engineering, music composition, visual design, video composition and final post-production of a music video accompanied by their own music. This camp is open to participants age 8-98. The camp runs from July 19th - July 23rd from 9am - 3pm. Snacks will be provided but campers need to provide their own lunch.
