What is CHFA?
CHFA is the first-of-its-kind Fine Arts Camp specifically focusing on Theatre and Filmmaking. Last year we had the first-ever Camp Hoblitzelle Film Conservatory (CHFC). We successfully created eight short films in less than a week. Delegates grew their creative filmmaking skills and learned from top experts in the field. We noticed many students solely wanted to focus their talents on Acting or Filmmaking. This year we decided to have a space where students can focus on the stage or behind the camera. To involve all aspects of arts for this summer and beyond, we formed Camp Hoblitzelle Fine Arts Conservatory.
Film & Theatre students will come together to be guided by industry professionals in creating live and filmed performances. The Film Majors will be capturing the performances of the Theatre Majors, including scenes, monologues, and musical numbers. Delegates will take advantage of working with film and theatre experts through masterclasses, workshops, and as instructors. Through this transformational experience, students will train in a positive, professional, and Christ-centered atmosphere.
Students who choose to focus on the filmmaking side will actively participate through hands-on filming. They will work behind the camera, roll sound, and be a part of the shoot crew to create short film sequences. The program is designed to be highly interactive, with participants spending significant time filming and working on various aspects of film production. They will learn the basics of cinematography, sound recording, editing, and art direction.
Theatre students will focus on live theatrical performances and acting on the screen. They will have the opportunity to work on scenes, monologues, and musical theatre numbers. Upon completing registration, there will be an optional audition for principal roles in the production. Students will spend time with industry professionals through masterclasses, inspirational speeches, and instruction. As a theatre major, you'll have the chance to specialize in areas that interest you, such as auditioning, acting for the camera, choreography, and more!
Quiet on the Set!
QUIET ON THE SET! – The multi-media showcase featuring a look behind the curtain and through the lens. Quiet On the Set! takes the audience on a journey from the first table read through the final performance. Filmmakers will capture the performance of theatre majors throughout the week on camera through songs and acts. The Theatre majors will also perform live theatrical numbers from Broadway Songs and scenes. We are truly creating a space for both staged and filmed art! Experience the final products of 80 campers creating art on the stage and behind the camera.
