Movies in the Morning: Summer Filmmaking Program

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Students interested in becoming filmmakers have an opportunity this summer through Champlain College to practice north of the border.

During the summer of 2013, students 18 years and older from any U.S. institution of higher education will have the opportunity to study screenwriting, cinematography, filming and post-production editing at Champlain College's Montreal campus from May 27 to August 2.

Students will receive 12 college credits. Participants are required to live in Champlain College's downtown Montreal campus housing. All shooting equipment will be provided. A laptop capable of editing video is suggested but not required.

Below is the financial breakdown for the program:

  • Tuition: $6,900 (USD)
  • Housing: $1,750 (estimated cost)
  • Facilities Fee: $780

The deadline to apply is April 1, 2013. The program will accept students based on their application materials and letters of reference regardless of their level of experience. Schmidt Barracano and his team are just as interested in introducing promising new filmmakers as they also work with advanced students. Apply soon; space is limited – there are only 20 seats available for the summer program.
