It's been a few years since Hollywood came knocking at our door. Maybe a new effort is the answer. A group of talented youngsters make up the Spring Break Film Camp, thanks to the Morningstar Cultural Arts Group, the City of Savannah and the Savannah Entrepreneurial Center.
They're spending their time away from school learning about the movie industry. Organizers hope this camp will be the start of something big.
"To get them interested at an early age now through the next five, ten, 20 years, we'll have our own films," said instructor J. Ron Higgins. "Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen live in New York. We could have the same type of system here. Homegrown filmmakers. We won't have to depend on Hollywood to choose us."
Students are also making their own movie. The camp ends this Friday, but the finale is the premiere of their movie. They'll show the finished product on Thursday, April 27 at 5:30pm at the Savannah Entrepreneurial Center.
