The T Tauri Movie Camp is accepting registrations for its 10th annual summer youth program, which takes place July 21 through August 2 in Batesville. Launched in 2005, T Tauri has offered a wide variety of video production workshops for aspiring filmmakers up to the age of 18. Workshops range from two to three and a half days in duration.
The 2014 Movie Camp offers four workshops: Script to Screen Narrative Filmmaking, Music Video, Video Self Portrait, and Cut Paper Stop Motion Animation. Workshops range from 2 to 3 ½ days in length and the cost is $60 to $100. T Tauri workshops are taught by experienced filmmaker/educators and the student to teacher ratio is 6 or 7 to 1. All supplies and equipment are included in the tuition cost.
The T Tauri Movie Camp is not a residential program. Students and their parents or chaperones from outside the Batesville area are encouraged take advantage of a discounted rate at the Batesville Comfort Suites Hotel; the Movie Camp rate is available for reservations made before July 1. In addition to the workshop sessions, the T Tauri experience also includes an official T Tauri t-shirt, a DVD featuring all of the movies made at camp in the current year, and a Finale Screening on the evening of Saturday, August 2. The Finale Screening is open to the public and showcases all of the films created in the current year’s workshops.
