ABOUT OUR CAMPS
01.
your own screenplay

Writing short films are a great calling card for a writer. Short films aren’t a lesser form of cinematic storytelling. In fact writing them requires the exact same skills as writing a feature length script – though on a smaller scale. In our 2 week summer courses our students team up to create a short screenplay which they focus their time on producing for the remaining of the course.

02.
Producing your Film
Our Filmmaking Program is comprehensive to build a strong foundation of core filmmaking skills and digital filmmaking techniques. Our students learn the core essentials of filmmaking under the mentorship of professional filmmakers, as you create your own films and gain real-world experience.
03.
Editing & Sound Design

The basic foundation of Editing is taught to all our students using Final Cut Pro through practical exercises. As a team spend their time cutting the footage, the remaining students collect B-roll footage and folly sound effects. Great emphasis is given to visual storytelling and in the use of all elements of story, performance, cinematography, frame composition, sound, and design to serve the narrative and the director’s vision.

LEARN EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL FILM MAKER
Claire Laho-Mccormack

Both My Daughter aged 13 and my son age 9 absoulutely love Mad Hatters Film Camp. Kirsten, Sam and Jamie make it so much fun, always coming up with new ideas. There is just nothing else that compares to it here on the coast. For me it’s lovely to see both my children enjoy something together. My daughter had the best birthday party there, my son has already put in a request for his! Thank you Mad Hatters for giving my children such fun weekends we look forward to many more!!

James Squires

My son has just finished a weekend at the Film Camp and loved every minute! He could barely contain his excitement when he arrived home and is still talking about it now! He’s learned lots, met some great people and been truly inspired. Thank you!

Cathy Riva

My daughter spent a week filled with fun and adventure. I highly recommend this camp. The team is terrific and the movies are so fun. Something we will treasure forever, and look forward to doing again next year.

Isabel Saunders-Lagrillière

My daughter started attending the weekend film camps earlier this year and she absolutely loves them! From the moment we entered Mad Hatters’ beautiful HQ on the beach till we watched the first movie she participated in, we just new that this was the right thing for her. Professional, fun, creative, cool, educational – I cannot praise or recommend them highly enough

Lis O'Kelly

Our son has just completed his first Film Camp and had an amazing time. We are so impressed. Sam and Kirsten & team are so friendly and really helpful with all our questions and our son’s needs. He came out having had a great time and having learnt so much. He just can’t wait for the next one!! Highly recommended.
