Bring your stories to the screen. During this summer studio, campers will learn how to use an iPad to film and edit their own short films and the storytelling techniques to express their unique points of view through this visual medium. Each camper will make a short film that will be screened on August 24 in Reston as part of the Reston: Through the Next Gen Lens program.

Campers will have a hands-on learning experience in the basics of filming, editing and story development, taught by the award-winning filmmaker Rebekah Wingert-Jabi. Her recent work includes the Reston documentary Another Way of Living: The Story of Reston, VA. The camp will focus on the themes from Reston’s founding values.
