Classes

At the Funside Balaton Media Camp we teach campers about photography, as well as filming and journalism, in two two-hour classes a day, Monday through Friday, at each camp. That is 20 hours week of your favourite subjects, if photography is your thing: we will show you the basics about compositing, help you with setting up your camera, teach you how to find the best subject matter and critique your work to improve your skills by the end of the week.

You will have plenty of chances to practice and learn, and even try a few tricks on how to improve your photos once you have taken them. The main focus of this camp is photography, but if you are interested, you can take a few classes in filming, as well as in journalism too.

At the end of the week, the best photos made by are students will be exhibited for all campers to see and you’ll also receive your own work on a DVD to take home with you.

The Media Camp is an intensive program (20 classes a week in total), therefore it cannot be combined with any other camp.

Videos from the Media Camp

Our campers in the past three years recorded a number of videos featuring different styles, such as live action, stop motion animation and clay animation.
