Foliage Films

Overnight Program
AGES 12-15

Directors, technicians, actors… assemble! In Telluride Academy’s exciting NEW film production program, students will engage their creative gears to conceive, write and produce a short film against the stunning backdrop of Telluride, Colorado. The journey begins as we delve into the visions of our participants through film-school-esque exercises amidst the great outdoors. With our minds activated, we’ll then dive into the intricacies of running a production set and mastering the use of professional-grade film equipment.
After acquiring the essential know-how, we’ll transition to the writer’s room, this time set around the campfire. Amidst final script edits and double-stacked s’mores, we’ll embark on our shoot days! Our mini production group will travel by van, equipped with all necessary gear, to capture the shots we need. As the curtains close on this filmmaking odyssey, Foliage Film Productions will unveil their creation at our Saturday screening and debut party! Everyone is invited!

Telluride Academy's Overnight Policy

Our talented instructors work hard to combat student homesickness on overnight programs. For many students, this experience might be their first time camping or away from home! In the days leading up to the overnight(s), the instructors have positive conversations with the groups to get them excited and prepared for their overnight adventures. This dynamic gets interrupted when a student is picked up early from their overnight. For this reason, we can not accommodate early pick-ups, unless in the case of an emergency. If your child does not want to attend the overnight, or if you have prior commitments that require early pick-up accommodations, we ask that you consider choosing a day program instead. Please call our office with any questions or concerns.
