(Its a real film so give us time after to complete) Our camps are fast, fun and you’ll be working with real industry pros who are excited to share their passion for filmmaking with your kids! And in the process your kids  will have a deeper level of the craft themselves!

Camps are broken up into age groups once the number of campers exceeds 12-we make a movie with the ages we have and that is realistic and sometimes more fun! We make more than one film in some weeks where we split ages. Each child ALWAYS gets a starring role as there is NEVER more than 15 kids per film and the film will earn them an IMDb credit! We also sprinkle in some improv, commercial, dance and story making classes in each camp-each camp has an additional two classes with the camp as well as a celebrity guest sometimes upon availability!

One amazing perk of these camps is that we offer everyone real red carpet screenings of the films! They are the stars! The Shanelle Gray Studios Film festival is held February of every year after the camps. They are held in LA at the Raleigh Film Studios! We host these events to make everyone feel special and to show them how amazing they did and what it feels like to be a part of something so special. At all of the events industry pros pick best films-and the winning film gets submitted to film festivals!

For the directors program- the child or adult must take two weeks of camp-for the first week they will shadow the director and watch the directors do their thing, the second week of camp they will get to help direct the film and receive and IMDB directors credit for directing too! They need to get their feet wet first which is why they need to do two weeks! (There is also an option for them to direct and act-ask about this option!) There is a nominal fee to do both.

At the red carpet celebs and industry pros pick best films-red carpet shots etc and the winning film gets submitted to various film festivals including sundance if the film is strong enough!
