Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

What is the age limit

Jodie M.  asked on  Apr 3, 2013

A:

Hi Jodie, The participants are grouped together with those similar in age - typically 6-9 year olds and 10-15 year olds. Occasionally, we will see 5 yr olds and 16-17 year olds signing up, but the majority usually fall in the 6-15 year old class range. Hope this helps!

Q:

My son won't be 5 until September, is he too young? He is mature for his age, very articulate, follows directions, and has no behavior problems. He has made short videos with my sister and LOVED it. Please let me know. Thanks.

Alicia W.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

A:

Hi Alicia, From time to time, we do make exceptions for a smart child who is slightly younger than cut off which is usually age 6. We leave it up you, the parents, to decide if your child will be able to have success in the class. We would welcome him if you decide to have him join the group.

Q:

Is there a discount if I enroll 3 or more of my teens?

Charity L.  asked on  Apr 6, 2013

A:

Hi Charity L., that is a good question. Currently, we don't have anything in place for people to save money when they purchase more than 2 groupons, however we do understand the cost associated with raising teenagers and are sure Popcorn Media would try to offer you some sort of incentive or discount on their end. Will you please call or email Popcorn Media's director, Steve Anderson, to discuss the matter with him? Steve (801)884-3755 cell or steve@popcornmedia.net . Good luck!

Q:

Also, is this class recommended for actors of young film makers?

Michele O.  asked on  Apr 5, 2013

A:

This class is for both types, but it is primarily and acting-for-the-camera experience, set up much like community theater. We have professionals operating the cameras and doing the lighting, editing, etc. to ensure the highest quality of finished movies, however on a case-by-case basis, children who are interested in learning more about how it works are invited to shadow our professionals and assist them in the process. So, it's a valuable experience for young filmmakers as well. Just let us know when you register, or at class, if your student would like to learn more about the production process and we'll make sure they do!

Q:

I have a 24 year old son, (who is high functioning on the autism spectrum) and who's interested in filmmaking. He loves Disney and Nickelodeon. Are there opportunities in your program for someone who is older to participate? If not, then do you have job, internship, or volunteer opportunities.

Rita D.  asked on  Apr 5, 2013

A:

Hi Rita, We do have a camp that we are offering in South Jordan, UT that I think might be a better fit for your son. Please contact us directly for more information on this special camp. My cell number is (801)884-3755 and my name is Steve. I look forward to hearing from you.

Q:

Do we get to film and edit our own film? And if so what camera and editing software will we be using?

Michele O.  asked on  Apr 5, 2013

A:

Hi Michele, each participant will be directed by one of our professional directors. You will learn some behind- the-scenes lingo, tricks, etc. by being around the pros, but this is primarily an acting for the camera experience, much like community theater. The pros are always willing to mentor those interested in learning more about how it all works though. Is that you?

Q:

I just purchased the week-long Kids Movie-Making camp in Park City for the week of 7/22-7/27. After I hit purchase, I noticed the fine print says this voucher expires on July 14, 2013. Please explain. Does that mean the offer is no good? Thanks.

Julie K.  asked on  Apr 3, 2013

A:

It means you must redeem your Groupon (i.e. register for camp) before then.

Sammy T.  from  Groupon  replied on  Apr 3, 2013

A:

I am very glad you asked this! Yes, of course - these vouchers will be good for this summer. I believe the reason for the early expiration date is to encourage you to register for the course early. But, certainly Popcorn Media will be honoring those vouchers throughout the advertised dates. Thank you for asking and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact us directly at (801)446-8280 or email steve@popcornmedia.net. Cheers!
