We have been mentoring the students of South Los Angeles for over a decade; connecting them with film schools, production companies, studios and our members. Now, we would like to launch an intensive summer film camp that pairs students that exhibit drive and talent from South Los Angeles with industry experts to produce a single, professional, short film that they can use to springboard into a career in our industry. As part of the BAFTA LA Intensive Film Camp, they will be given the unique opportunity to pitch, write, storyboard, prep, light, shoot and edit their own films, shadowed by working film professionals.
The full cost of the BAFTA Los Angeles Intensive Film Camp, which we will host will be approximately $100,000. By raising the first $10,000, we can jumpstart our fundraising goal by asking for individual and corporate matching donations. Your gift will offer a foot in the door and a pathway to excellence for talented young people in Los Angeles uninhibited by background, demographics or personal circumstance.
