I Am Prince George Online Filmmaking Program (Reel Youth)
“We may be in self-isolation, but we are in this together. The COVID-19 pandemic is distancing us, so Reel Youth and the Connaught Youth Centre are presenting a fun and creative way to connect with each other, and make films in response to this important time in history.
Community will not be cancelled!
THE I AM PRINCE GEORGE ONLINE FILM PROGRAM is a free online program enabling young people to connect with each other and create strong films. Reel Youth facilitators will lead guided creative writing and filmmaking activities that will capture personal stories and experiences while living through the Covid-19 pandemic. No previous experience is necessary!
Participants aged 10-14 from Prince George area will be selected, to create their own short film. The strongest films will be distributed through Reel Youth & Connaught Youth Centre’s online media channels and Telus Video-on-Demand streaming service.
THE I AM PRINCE GEORGE ONLINE FILM PROGRAM includes six online sessions (90 mins each) for participants to gather with Reel Youth facilitators over ZOOM and create community through the media arts. You will be introduced to principles of filmmaking, and practice media production skills by shooting and editing an original short video from home. You will need access to a smartphone or a video camera, and a laptop or computer in order to participate. All participants will be provided with a licence for Adobe Rush for editing your film.”
