March Break Magic Camp for Kids

15 Feb

Are you 9 to 12 years old? Do you love magic? Ever wanted to know how to make movies? Then what are you doing this March Break?

Make Movie Magic with Magicana and TIFF!

We are partnering with Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) to deliver a combined Magic and Film March Break Camp March 14-18, 2011. It’s designed for young people 9 to 12 years old and runs every day from 9 AM to 3PM. Details and registration can be found on the TIFF website or by calling the TIFF Box Office: 416 – 599 – TIFF (8433).

We will combine the fun of  learning and performing magic tricks with the magical process of making a movie. During the week, kids will be taught and coached to perform and present magic tricks while simultaneously learning how to storyboard and  film their magic tricks. (You will even learn post production magic!) The goal is to present their final movie clip for friends and family.

Do not miss out out on this limited-space event! Call TIFF (416-599-TIFF) to register your magic movie maker now.
