Plotline “On Location” 2024

Sold Out

Plotline “On Location” at the Missouri State University is a filmmaking camp for students, ages 11-17.

New as well as experienced filmmakers will learn and refine their skills as they produce original shorts while filmming on location at Missouri State Campus. Strong Hall will be our home base. A map with pick up and drop off instructions will be sent out prior to the beginning of camp.

We will also get a very special tour of KSMU radio station and Ozarks Public Television studio!

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

Camp is Mondays – Fridays, 9am – 1pm, 7/22 – 8/2.

Morning snacks, beverages & lunch are included each day!

Tuition is $550 which can be paid in installments.
