About Kids Camera Action

Kids Camera Action! is a unique filmmaking school, aimed at kids between the ages of 8 and 16. Beginning in 2010 and based in Adelaide, South Australia, Kids Camera Action! is the brain child of award winning filmmaker, Chloe Gardner. Combining her passions for performance and film with her love of teaching children the creative arts, Kids Camera Action! has been developed as a valuable and enriching extra curricular and in-school activity.

Through an interactive and hands on approach, kids are taught all the fundamentals of basic film production. Emphasising creativity and team work, the Kids Camera Action! workshops are delivered in many formats: After School Classes, In-School Classes, Weekend Workshops, School Holiday Programs, Workshops with libraries and local council workshops. Almost all films made at Kids Camera Action! are screened at the end of the year at a Cinema in the City. Enter the world of Film and discover the magic of Movie Making!
