Excited to have Curt Mega from LA return for a week long movie camp. 

Check out this interview about camp


In partnership with actor, writer and director Curt Mega/Story Matters Studios, students will be immersed in the filmmaking process, from world-building, to screenwriting, to character development, to on-set production and filming. This intensive week-long filmmaking journey will empower students by creating an immersive, in-depth cinematic experience, helping artists to further their career as both actors and aspiring filmmakers.


Your film will get you IMDB credits, and footage for your reel. Not group footage with 15 other actors, but actual amazing footage.


We will be meeting with the group via zoom a few times in advance to discuss , script ideas, writing, locations, character development.  Remember if you / your child needs assistance with car pool let us know.

Dates:  August 9 - 13, 2021   Working / School see below - you don't have to be there the entire time if you have other commitments.

Location: Will be scouting, tentatively Alexandria, VA area

Past work:


We will be working on scripting, filming, acting (and some coaching), camera angles, terminology, and when not filming learning about headshots, set lingo, commercials, and much more.


This is for youth and adult. 


Worried you have to work and will miss a day or two or have to come later in the day, etc. No problem. We can work around that and do your scenes when you are available, as well as catch you up with some zooming, so don't worry about it. We will make it work. If you have questions, please email me and I can explain more in detail to you. We've done that in the past, especially for our adult actors.
