Joey Travolta's Short Film Camp

To learn more about Joey Travolta's camp please visit  Inclusion Films 


CAMP DATES:  July 9th - July 20th

Limited to 50 campers - Ages 10-28
(exceptions made for younger campers if criteria for participation is met)
Joey Travolta, special educator and film maker, and his crew of professionals teach kids age 10-23 the art of film  making from concept to creation.  In two weeks, campers learn everything from script development, pitching an idea, lighting, directing, acting, editing, animation, and shoot a digital short film. The program is inclusive to kids with special needs and on the higher end of the autism spectrum or Asperger's. However, it is not a special needs camp,  as the program infuses social skills in a creative environment where film making is the common denominator. The focus is on collaboration and support of  each other's creative contributions.  Once the film is complete, a red carpet premiere is held and the campers see the end result of their creation. Each camper leaves with a copy of the film.  It is an amazing experience for all involved. (See footage)

Additionally, we hold monthly film club (Peer Vision Film Club) at our center in Hackensack to nourish the newly made relationships and extend film making opportunities. (Oct. - June)

Joey's program is more than impressive.  Any kid who loves film and wants to learn from the pro's will love this camp!   Joey runs the show and the kids are drawn to him.
