Dwayne Boyd’s 1st Annual Summer Film Camp

BY: KIMBERLY ALSUP

I have to say attending the Red Carpet Premier and watching their short film, KARMIN’S SELFIE was not only amazing but also inspiring. I worked at a similar camp last year and it did not run as smoothly, effectively or produced this type of result as this camp did. These kids achieved a feat that a lot of adults can’t even accomplish in this short period of time. Within this camp the kids wrote, produced and shot a short film, participated in post-production activities including editing, marketing, and distribution and coordinated a red carpet premier for a showing of the film they created in the Porter Sanford Theatre on the weekend of the last weekend of the camp. The red carpet premier included photos, interviews, and a Q & A with the cast and crew after the film.

As a kid, I was very artsy and liked to read and write and wasn’t into the traditional activities that other kids were interested in. In middle and high school, I began to dissect television shows like no one else. I loved dialogue from a young age, I was always thought of to be weird because I wasn’t into the usual kid stuff like fashion, boys, and sex, but into trying to write and rewinding my favorite programs to dissect dialogue after school. I wish there was a camp available like this when I was growing up. I love the positivity that this camp promoted with the kids because truly in this day and age they could be doing anything.
