Joey Travolta brings Hollywood to Jacksonville for children with autism
The goal of the two-week camp is to produce three films to assemble into a movie titled Friday Night After The Movies. "We take them through all the steps of filmmaking from writing to editing to using the camera. They do it all," Travolta said. "It is not just a camp. It is like a a provocation and social skills program too." The camp, sponsored by FilmLab Productions and MDI Holdings, allows children with autism, each nominated by a teacher or therapist, the chance to encounter Hollywood professionals and to experience a creative outlet.
