Testimonials

Watson had a blast at the Reel Spirit Film Camp. It was a great outlet for creativity, and it has been fun to see him use the skills he learned over those few days to explore other projects and engage other friends of his since. He absorbed the “classroom” type teachings about how to actually plan a story for film, and the pride with which he shows off the finished product is really a pleasure to see. And the short film itself was great too! We got a chance to see some talents shine that we might otherwise have missed.

Thanks for providing this opportunity.

Mr. and Mrs. Deason

I learned about shots with cameras. I think other people should join because it’s really fun and exciting.

camper: Jared

The camp helped grow his self esteem and provided a creative outlet. Our camper came home the last day and immediately got the camera and tripod and began filming his next movie. He tells us that filming was his favorite part of the camp. That, to me, says the camp was a success.
