Plotline “On Location”

Plotline “On Location” at the Moxie Cinema is a filmmaking camp for teens ages 13-18.

It runs Mondays – Fridays, from 9am – 1pm, 7/12 – 7/23.  New as well as experienced filmmakers will learn and refine their skills as they produce original shorts while filmming on location in historic downtown Springfield, Missouri.

Students can expect hands on learning experiences and creative collaboration with classmates and instructors. We’ll still make time though to watch a couple of movies during camp.

Morning snacks, beverages & lunch are included each day!

The Moxie Cinema is Springfield’s own nonprofit movie theater. During camp one of their theaters will be our screening room!

Wilhoit Plaza is generously providing a variety of filming locations which we will use during production week.

Week One – Review & Refine

  • Cinematic Camera Shots
  • Controlling Light & Shadows

Week Two – Production
