Empowering young people with life and leadership skills through motion media.

For over 20 years, The Movie Institute has inspired life and leadership skills in young people and adults through the creativity and discipline of motion media. We offer filmmaking camps, workshops, and other programs that help build positive character growth and successful career development.


Camps & Workshops

The Movie Institute’s camps, workshops, and programs are vibrant and innovative, driven by your creativity, and designed to build skills and teamwork with hands-on, real-world training in all aspects of motion media production & performance. Behind it all is fun, and we heap it on like hot butter on popcorn.


Video Production Services

Our Video Production Services program is a real world training program for some of our most ambitious students. It’s not just a way for commercial and non-profit organizations to make professional quality videos at reduced rates, it’s also a great way to help young people gain real experience in the video production business.


I love this program and the people who run it! As a kid, it was one of the most looked-forward-to weeks of the year for me. I still have lasting friendships with people I met there. Without the program’s instruction and ability to see young people as potential creatives with valuable opinions and not just children, I likely wouldn’t get to make films and commercials for a living today. Signing up for the program was one of the best investments I ever made in my future.

Kamp Hollywood gave me the opportunity to find my passion in producing. Every camper gets hands-on experience and ultimately decides what their role will be. I learned all the film lingo and experienced the process of making a movie from writing out the ideas to screening the projects for our families, but most importantly I learned how to collaborate as a member of a team. I looked forward to going to Kamp Hollywood every summer and frequently reference my experience in job interviews. I cannot recommend this program enough. If you are a parent considering signing your child up, know you are giving your child a worthwhile experience, full of valuable information and fun times!
