"Teaching students about film production at an early age is critical for inspiring the next generation of talent to push the bounds in the film industry" said James Fox, Owner/Director, Dawnrunner Productions and one of the Starting Arts Film Camp Instructors "We're offering, not just the chance to learn filmmaking, but also the opportunity to complete the program with a finished short film. For young talent, this is a big leg-up in pursuing their acting career goals."
