Summer Youth Film Intensive




PushPush Offers New 2014 Summer Film Intensive for ages 12-18!

In association with its new GRFX Series, PushPush is announcing an exciting new phase of its signature youth performance camp. We are offering a fun and challenging filmmaking program that gives students the opportunity to develop and produce an original, festival-worthy, short film.

The four-week intensive will be led by PushPush Theater’s Artistic Director, award-winning Writer/Director/Producer Tim Habeger, along with a wide array of instructors from organizations including: the Atlanta Film Festival, Pop Films, The Plaza Theater, Tyler Perry Studios, Screen Gems studios; and from shows like The Walking Dead and more. These industry professionals will provide hands-on instruction in their field. This summer program will culminate in a rough-cut screening for family and friends, and a larger premier screening of the finished film at Atlanta’s historic Plaza Theater this Fall.

The program is open to highly motivated youths age 12-18 (special consideration needed for younger participants) interested in a focused filmmaking experience – in front of the camera and/or working behind the scenes. Through concentrated teamwork and leadership opportunities, participants will not only have professional work to show for their efforts, but also increase their knowledge and skills in such areas as:

  • Film Set Etiquette

  • Acting on Camera

  • The Director’s Job

  • Story architecture

  • Cinematography & Camera operation

  • Costumes & Make-up

  • Editing

  • Art Direction

  • Lighting and Grip

  • Production Assistance

Experience is helpful but not required. However, each candidate must complete our review process, before the course begins, to ascertain their level of participation, motivation, and ability to work within a team.

Space is limited due to the nature of the program, so start the process early.


Dates: June 23 – July 18, 2014

Times: Monday – Friday, 10am – 3pm

Ages: 12-18 (special consideration is needed for participants under 12)

Fee: $1000 (for full session) or $350 per week (two week minimum) + $50 for supplies


There are a limited number of need-based discounts available for ideal candidates that demonstrate a clear financial need.
