The Week


Skyra Studios offers an elite filmmaking summer intensive where your child will have the opportunity to develop, shoot, and edit a film project. The students will be given an in-depth breakdown of how the industry works from creation to exhibition. Each day the students will learn about the different crew responsibilities and participate in exercises directly relating to their jobs on the film set. On top of the production side, students will learn what it takes to be a creative writer/producer. The students will learn story structure, script formatting and the process of creating materials for pitching. Once the script is written the students will learn what it takes to be a director. They will learn how to establish a tone, create a shot list and work with talent.  Students will leave Skyra Studios with the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their dreams of being in the film industry.

Example Schedule:

  • Filmmaking 101
  • Camera Lab
  • Lighting Lab
  • Lunch
  • Developing Story
  • How to write a script
  • Intro to Directing

The Film Projects

Skyra Studios will team up with Skyra Entertainment to create 2 film projects that will be used as proof of concepts for full feature films and sent out to buyers in both the US and Canada. Each project will include dance scenes for those dancers interested in learning how to perform for the camera. Award-winning producers Scott and Mary Poiley, have developed the summer program for students to gain real industry experience. The students will be quickly immersed in a hands-on program that will teach them the do’s and don’ts of auditioning, scene study, character development and what it’s like to be on a real film set. The summer program offers opportunities for all interests. If your child is not interested in being in front of the camera, they can join us behind the scenes. They can learn about producing, writing and all the other departments on a film set.

Note: We will produce two film shorts this summer. One during Session 1 and another during Session 2. To be included in the Film Shorts you will need to attend the full day program for the last two weeks in June (June 11-22nd) and the two weeks in July (July 9-20th).
