Destinations: February 2009 Archives

What: G.E.M.M. - Girls Empowered to Make Movies is a destination where Girl Scouts ages 14-17 spend 10 days in beautiful San Diego, California working with professional filmmakers to hone their skills in writing, directing, editing, acting, cinematography, and production.  All aspects of the filmmaking process will be covered as they work in small crews to make movies.  Everyone will get the opportunity to fulfill each of the basic crew positions as well as write, direct, and edit a short film of up to five minutes. Twenty-four girls from around the country will enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of a major motion picture studio plus other great surprises!
