TYPICAL DAY

Screenwriting at Camp StarCrest is unlike any other program of its kind. Writing students spend 3-4 instructional periods EVERYDAY in intensives ranging from character development & story structure to casting & writing. They collaborate with acting students to shoot 1-3 portfolio-worthy films during their weeks at camp.

WHAT MAKES STARCREST DIFFERENT? At our camp, we have a free period (Pineapple Hour) where students have time to explore other program areas inside and outside their specialty. This gives them the opportunity to relax and enjoy campus. Since we only allow electronics at specific times throughout the day, campers have time to be kids without the pressure of social media. Many campers have stated that StarCrest is the perfect place to grow and connect differently that they can at school. After dinner they participate in an all camp activity from spy night & mini golf to film festivals & talent shows. This takes place all on our beautiful campus in the Santa Monica Mountains, healthy & delicious food, fantastic living arrangements, COMPLETE WITH ACCESS TO OUR PREMIERE FILM STUDIO AND BACKLOT from our partnership with Dream Studios.
