Disney Studios Opens to KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Boot Camp

KF_FilmCritics_218x225.jpgFor kids who love movies, what better place to spend their week than at KIDS FIRST! Film Critics Boot Camp at the world-famous Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, Calif! This is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that 15 lucky kids will enjoy next month, July 11-15, as KIDS FIRST! presents its exciting Film Critics Boot Camp program with coordinated activities and screenings provided by the Disney Studios.

Watching movies, of course, is one of kids’ favorite activities. KIDS FIRST! has developed valuable learning to help them understand why and how movies create the impressions they do. Thanks to Disney’s participation this summer, Boot Camp attendees will also get to see screenings of the latest Disney films, learning about upcoming 3-D technology and – probably most exciting of all – interview some of the talented folks from the studio’s films.

With visual media as pervasive as it is in today’s world, understanding how movies are put together gives kids valuable tools that go far beyond the movie theater. Boot Camp director Janet Davidson brings her experience as a filmmaker to the program that teaches kids aged 8 to 13 how to look critically at individual elements, from directing and acting to cinematography, writing and art direction. Boot Campers will take in new films – such as Winnie the Pooh, The Lion King 3D, PROM, Phineas and Ferb and the all-new Muppets movie – and discuss them, and will also view older films and compare published reviews with their own reactions to the films. They will learn to write film reviews and review films on camera that will be broadcast nationally. Not to mention the Boot Camp bonus of dining at the Disney Commissary every day – with the chance of catching sight of many a movie star!

Limited to 15 kids, ages 8-13, and the slots are almost filled. If you’re interested, go to http://www.kidsfirst.org/become-a-juror/BootCamp.html for more info or to sign up.
