Westport

This summer, take a deep dive into filmmaking. Guided by Filmmakers Ink professionals, our young filmmakers learn by doing as they develop the key creative and technical skills required for exceptional filmmaking. Filmmakers Ink programs are designed to give students solid lifelong hacks with which to access, express, and develop their creative ideas and then turn them into movies.

Under the leadership of award-winning filmmaker Patrick McCullough, Filmmakers Ink has set itself apart from other film camps by focusing on the most challenging part of the process: how to come up with, and develop, good ideas for great films.
