May 21, 2002 – Friday is the deadline for students to submit applications to take part in this summer's second annual Youth Digital Moviemaking Workshop at the Reichhold Center for the Arts.
The seven-week program, which runs from June 24 through Aug. 9, will provide hands-on training in digital film production techniques to young people ages 13-21. In addition to studying the basics of digital videography and computer editing, students will gain experience in effective communication and teamwork to bring a project to completion.
As their final project, participants will collaborate in producing a short motion picture.
"To watch the Digital Moviemaking Workshop grow from an idea into something that has proven to be engaging to young people is delightful," David Edgecombe, Reichhold director, said. The first workshop participants learned communication and production skills that will serve them for a lifetime, he said, adding, "We expect the same will be true again this summer."
Up to 15 students will be accepted for the program. "Self-motivated students who have demonstrated an aptitude in the fine arts (photography, music, dance, writing, drawing, painting etc.) are strongly encouraged to apply," a release stated. Some financial aid is available. Lunch will be provided.
Applications are available in the principal's office of each middle and high school and at the Reichhold Center office. For further information, call 693-1550.
