Video Production 9 - 12 Stanford Sunday, July 14, 2024 Saturday, July 20, 2024
Video Production 6 - 8 Stanford Sunday, July 21, 2024 Friday, July 26, 2024

Course Description: 

In Video Production Camp, campers produce, direct, light, shoot and edit like the experts. They complete exercises and projects which culminate in their own original short movie. Students will learn to utilize titles, graphics, music, Special Effects, and live-action video while developing leadership, communication, project management, creative design, and technical skills.

Students work in a lab equipped with computers and Adobe Creative Suite software as they shoot and edit their own movies. Instructors guide students through an exciting, hands-on educational experience. The students will use cutting-edge video technology for cameras, lighting, and editing software to produce an industry-level production.

From Day one, campers learn some of the basics of shooting quality footage and industry terms. On the second day students then begin to plan their movie project which will be shot and edited during the remainder of the week and plunge into editing as campers begin to produce their project. Throughout the week, the complexity of the projects grows along with the student’s skills and knowledge, developed through a fast-paced mix of instruction and exercises. Students provide peer feedback and the teacher leads critiques of the project as the students improve their videos with formative assessment. 

The week culminates in a screening of the students’ movies for an audience of fellow campers, family, and friends. Each student will receive a digital copy of their work and a handbook/manual which contains the information that was covered in the course for future reference.

Job Description:

The Video Production Instructor is responsible for leading students in daily video production workshops, including seminars in writing, directing, cinematography, editing, and graphics. Instructors will work with students in the field as they write, shoot, and edit one or more short films. Responsibilities include supervising campers both in and out of the classroom, guiding campers through the filmmaking process, and offering feedback in one-on-one sessions as needed. Instructors will also be responsible for tracking student work, handing in any deliverables to the camp director, and executing a screening showcasing student work at the end of camp. Instructors should have some professional experience in film and video production and be enthusiastic about guiding students through the filmmaking process.


  • 3+ years’ experience teaching video production at any level or significant professional experience.
  • Bachelor's degree is required; preference is given to those with an advanced degree and/or professional experience.
  • A calm and professional demeanor.
  • The willingness and ability to work long hours.
  • Self-motivation and follow-through.
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail.
  • Strong people skills.
  • A passion for video production.

In addition to teaching responsibilities, instructors should be available and willing to assist the camp director with active supervision, recreational activities, and some administrative tasks. Instructors should be mature, reliable, and able to work well with fellow staffers. Instructors are also expected to act as mentors and will help lead field trips and guide students on excursions. With the support of the entire staff, instructors are responsible for the health and safety of students, in addition to fulfilling instructional objectives.

This is a residential position — room, board, and parking on campus are provided for the duration of the program.

We will also consider instructors who wish to commute daily but preference is given to those candidates who are willing to live on campus and assist with dorm supervision. Instructors may be hired for one session or for multiple sessions of this program. Please indicate your availability on your application.
