Everyone has a story to tell, including you! In this one week workshop for folks age 55+, you will learn how to share a story from your life through the power of video.
Using photographs, interviews, music, and narration, you will create a two minute video which you can share with family and friends. In the process, you will learn the basics of video production and editing with help from the instructor and your fellow students. We will provide video cameras and access to the Mac video editing stations in the Takoma Park Community Center’s multi-media lab.
At the end of the camp, we will upload your video online (either to YouTube or a private Vimeo link) so you can share it with friends and family. Some projects may also be shared (with your permission) at Docs In Progress’ Community Stories Festival in November.
This program is being organized by Docs In Progress in collaboration with the Takoma Park Recreation Department. It is made possible through support from the City of Takoma Park.
$180 ($80 for residents of Takoma Park, MD)
Space is limited so advance registration is highly recommended. Registration online is highly preferred, even if you plan to pay by check. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail or call our Program Manager, Andrea Passafiume.

Additional time info:
Participants will need to commit to attending the camp all five afternoons (i.e., a filmmaking workshop does not lend itself well to drop-ins).
