Two-Week Camp

Honolulu, Hawaiʻi

June 19-30, 2017

Girls learn storytelling, storyboarding, scriptwriting, use of professional camera, lighting, audio, and editing. Working in small production teams with a mentor, they produce a short video, and so learn the skills to create their own media.

THE FILMS

PRETTY GOOD START

Steel Ladies Productions

Erin is your typical pass/fail teenage girl but unlike her peers, she understands the toll a mental illness like depression takes on one's academic and personal life. Things begin to change for Erin when she finally responds to a false claim Jennifer, one of her closest friends makes about depression.

SOLA

Bloody Nuns Productions

Our story is about a girl who tries to make her best friend feel better because of a bad break up. The main character Sola is dragged by her best friend, Lola to break into an abandon school. They wander around the school and have fun, until one of them disappears. The friend is never gonna be seen ever again. Until we look at the security footage.
