Short Film Camp

2019 short film camp participants
Inclusion Films

In partnership with North Bay Regional Center, Solano County Office of Education hosts short film camps through Inclusion Films. Founded by veteran filmmaker Joey Travolta, Inclusion Films’ short film camps teach teens and young adults with developmental disabilities the principles of filmmaking. Within the two-week sessions, campers developed, a script, act, and shoot their film with professional support and equipment. The program encourages communication, confidence, collaboration, and independence through acting and digital filmmaking.


 

2019 Student Film The Bizarre Zone

To celebrate the success of our young filmmakers, SCOE hosted a red-carpet film premiere at the Vacaville Performing Arts Theater. The day started with a kickoff breakfast and live broadcasts from Good Day Sacramento. Then the students were whisked off for hair, makeup, and to don gowns or tuxedos, much of which was donated by Solano County businesses. Finally, limousine buses carried students to the red carpet, where 500 family and friends were waiting to cheer their entrance. 

The much-anticipated film, The Bizarre Zone, played on the theater screen. The film featured all fifty-eight students, behind the scenes footage, and the short films that the students created at camp. The evening was a magical experience for our young adults and their families. Moreover, film camp and the film premiere gave students an outlet for creativity, friendship, independence, and also recognized them as invaluable members of our Solano Community.
