Filmmaking for Kids
Adelaide's only film school for kids
After school, in-school, weekends and school holiday programs

About Us

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 local Adelaide actress and 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 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 four formats: After School Classes, In-School Classes, Weekend Workshops and School Holiday Programs. 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!
