Fish Camp Films
An apprenticeship approach to teaching filmmaking in Birmingham, Alabama.
Fish Camp Films is the newest innovation of Urban Avenues and is the work of a group of filmmakers from around Alabama who act as Sector Leaders in the design and execution of this venture. Our goal is to introduce high school students from fragile economic areas (initially Woodlawn High School) to the disciplines and freedom of the art of film.
Year one focuses on the different types of films and how they are made
Developing a Story
Year two helps the students learn the journalistic skills of story development and interviewing
Producing a Film
Year three gives the students a chance to produce an individual student project from start to finish and show it at the Fish Camp Films film festival
