Dave's Film Camp

David Montgomery here! I teach first grade and I have become known in the KAS community for my skills in making funny short films with my own students for educational purposes, and traditionally opening the KAS Talent Show with non-educational ones I've made. In my filmmaking camp, we will work with reader's theater scripts, write our own, paint set backgrounds and create costumes, then rehearse, and film our movies. I edit the films myself, but show the kids some of the behind-the-scenes stuff that makes them so much fun. I'm offering different camps for the rest of the year. We always have the premiere for parents on the last day of camp.


Cost will be $175 per child and will include a light snack. Each camp offered runs for 10 sessions, with calendars for each below. If you are interested in any, please email me at david.montgomery@kentuckyavenueschool.org to confirm your spot! Space for each camp is very limited, so act fast. I'll write you back to confirm. Camp tuition can be paid in cash or checks can be made out to David Montgomery and will be due by the first class. Thanks in advance and hope to see you there!
