The Legacies Project: August Y Media Works Video Project Dates Announced
Y Media Works Summer Institute 2010 has come and gone (we’ll be posting the student work here soon!). But for those who wanted to take part but couldn’t for one reason or another, we are offering a limited, project-based experience during the month of August. We are continuing our work with our friends at Nice Work Public Media and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, creating brief documentary videos from a series of interviews with elders from the community. The Legacies Project “will familiarize students with the techniques of digital media production as well as local and national history. The project will entail training in video production techniques, student acquisition of interviews on videotape, and the production and display of short documentaries using student-acquired media” (from the program plan).
This limited project, which runs Monday through Friday, August 9 through August 26, will require students to register for one of three available 2 1/2 hour time slots during the day:
- Group 1 – 9a-11:30a
- Group 2 – 12n-2:30p
- Group 3 – 3p-5:30p
The final videos will be shown at a special event, open to the public, at the Museum of African American History.
To register, return this registration form to the Boll Family YMCA, 1401 Broadway, Detroit.
A registration fee of $25 is payable to Y-Arts Detroit. Call 313.223.2743 for more information.
