A LITTLE BIT
Our goal is to nurture the talent within every student and boost their confidence in whatever they choose to be. Every pupil is different, as are we, and that is what makes the MadHatter´s a fun and diverse team!
We are passionate about what we do
but also the individual passions and characters of each and every student that we have the pleasure in teaching. MadHatter’s is born out of a desire to help every pupil grow and develop not only their skill set but their unique personalities.
It’s all about having fun
and although we have a traditional structure to the camp, we avoid the mundane and always try and keep the energy and the interaction full speed. We also break up the week with an outdoor activity to help team spirit. This varies from a water park outing to the photography competition we hold at the Castellar animal rescue center to half a day at the beach to brainstorm a certain scene. Afterall, It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves – in finding themselves.
Many students may be interested in film and the movies but MadHatter’s aims to show the pupils the
different aspects and roles in the film industry
to help them decide where they may see their focus or skills being applied most suitably. From in front of the camera, as a main role, to creating the perfect mood by concentrating on lighting, the camp is here to help them shape their passion into potential careers or at the very least, a hobby for life.
