The Town of North Hempstead will be bringing the Incrediflix movie and animation program to the Yes We Can Community Center in New Cassel from July 28 to Aug. 1. This incredibly popular program which started in California and has recently made its way to the east coast, is divided up into two separate camps: Filmmaking Flix and Lego Flix.
Filmmaking Flix is from 9 a.m. to noon each day, and gives students all the tutelage and resources necessary to film their own motion picture. Kids will location scout, act, film and learn filmmaking strategies. The Lego Flix program is from 1 to 4 p.m. and will teach students how to make a Lego stop-motion animated film by creating backgrounds, characters, and doing voice-overs. At the end of the week, students will take home their very own completed movie.
“The Incrediflix program emphasizes teamwork, creativity and imagination, which are such important tools for children,” Supervisor Judi Bosworth said. “And what could be more exciting than walking away with your very own movie that you made?”
“We are so proud to host this nationally-renowned camp at our very own ‘Yes We Can’ Community Center,” Councilwoman Viviana Russell said. “This is such a wonderful opportunity for the children in our community to learn from filmmaking professionals.”
Camps are for children ages 7 to 13. The cost of each camp is $170, with a $30 production fee. Sign up for both camps and only pay one production fee and lunch supervision will be provided at no cost.
Register by calling 311 or 516-869-6311 from outside the Town of North Hempstead.
