Teen Camp - Multimedia

ENROLL AT CAMP

Turning an idea into reality

Your teenager can now have fun and gain useful practical skills at the same time! Multimedia camp is available to teens between 12 and 16 years who’d like to spend 2 weeks learning useful software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects or Maya 3D and practicing their creative skills.

We put emphasis on both creative processes and technical skills that give life to an amazing idea. Our curriculum enables camp participants to connect digital and traditional art while immersing themselves in the world of visual effects. From the beginning until the end, our team coordinates the process of conceptualizing, taking photos or filming videos, using software for editing and creating – until the final moment of getting it ready for the online world!

The camp programme is a combination of activities such as film projections at Crater cinema, visits to the studio and meetings with artists, visits to cultural institutions, art workshops and various other activities that are connected to the process of digital creation.

At completion, camp participants will be able to imagine themselves carving their professional path in industries such as visual effects for film and TV, animation, game design, architectural visualization, industrial design, scenography, graphic design, web design, video editing and many other careers combining technology and creativity.

Winter Teen Camp is taking place from February 1st till February 12th 2021, during school break in Serbia. The camp concept is based on teamwork and a joint final project in Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere software. Each camp cycle is based on theoretical, practical and research work. Within two weeks, participants will gain knowledge of the significant connections between traditional and digital art as they work through materials and references they get from camp activities. Through activities such as taking photos and videos, visits to cultural institutions and talks with studio artists, camp participants focus both on individual and teamwork skills while getting to know a creative process from the beginning to end.

Outdoor activities during summer include walks to Kalemegan, Pančićev park and May 25th promenade. During wintertime activities are taking place at cultural institutions such as Kinoteka, National Museum, Museum of Science and Technology.

The 2 weeks programme covers:

  • Practical learning and working in the specific software depending on the camp cycle (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects or Maya)
  • Art workshops
  • Visits to cultural institutions
  • Outdoor activities
  • Film projections in Crater Studio cinema
  • Crater Studio tour and talks with artists
  • Meals during the day (with prior notice)

After successfully completing the camp programme, each participant gets a certificate of completion, as well as internationally recognized Autodesk or Adobe certificate of completed course.
