Summer K.A.M.P. Successes!

A First Time for Everything

What a treat it was to host our first year of afternoon enrichment and Summer K.A.M.P.  The majority of our kids during the summer break were from families who have never experienced our program and the kids came ready to work hard!  Daily, we built sets, wrote scripts, filmed, edited, composed scores and sound effects, produced voice-overs, applied special effects or just dreamed a little.  Starting at the beginning of each week with nothing, and ending with some amazing little ideas coming to life was fantastic.  We are thankful for the positive feedback and look forward to serving you all in the Fall!

Summer K.A.M.P. Creations

Here are some of the amazing videos created by our K.A.M.P. kids this summer:

Week 1 Stop Motion “The Bounty Hunters”

Week 2 Filmmaking “The Ghosts Band”

Week 3 Music Video Production Lip-sync video of “Ride” by Twenty One Pilots

Week 4 Stop Motion Animation “The Flame of Light”

Week 5 Filmmaking “The Missing”

Week 6 Music Video Production Lip-sync Video of “River” by Bishop Briggs

Week 3 Summer K.A.M.P. Video!

Check out our K.A.M.P. Kids from our Week 3 Music Video Production Workshop! After some planning, the kids decided to produce a lip-sync version of “Ride” by Twenty One Pilots. We planned our video, did some location scouting, filmed on the square, utilized green-screen, learned about lighting, applying special effects and DSLR basics and edited our video in Final Cut ProX. What a GREAT week!

Our first song cut in our new production room is an anti-bullying/Pro-Kid-Empowerment anthem called “Bullies Are Just Babies”.  It features many of The MSA Kids, with Shaina and Christian on the verses, Tinley, Ella and Luca on backgrounds and ad-libs and Julian as the “the bully voice” on the bridge.  We hope that you enjoy and share with the kids!

Our First “Festicciola” (The Little Party)

Tags :

Category : announcements

We are here!  Our little kick-off party on Friday (the 13th 😉 felt like the entire city was there!  It was a blessing to have our big day coincide with City of Decatur’s Lantern Festival.  Plenty of kids and folks from the community were around and we thoroughly enjoyed spreading the word about what we will be doing here!

What an occasion and reason to celebrate my friends! Earlier in the day, we signed our paperwork with Private Bank of Decatur and received the necessary support to get our little nonprofit off of the ground!  The 13th of May will always be remembered as our Founders Day!

Our Signing Day

Arianna, Eric Swilling (Private Bank of Decatur), Leonard Thibadeau (co-owner of the Houston house), Toni and myself, Rob Beall (Private Bank of Decatur) and Stephen (co-owner of the Houston House).


“Festicciola”, as Arianna says, is an Italian word that roughly translates to “the little party”.  We plan to make this day a day to be remembered annually, reminding us of our humble beginnings, big dreams and the manifesting of the initial vision into substantial and physical form.  We are so happy to announce this little academy’s arrival in Downtown Decatur.  Please check out some of the pics in our gallery below.  Also, the pics were from late in the evening and there are a LOT of people missing from earlier in the day!  Our first investors Devaughn and Shahnaz love you guys!  Jon, Cohen and Kate were great!  Khalfani and Makeda you guys came through!  Bill and Karen thx for coming out with the kids and friends!  See all of you soon!
