2-day documentary video workshop for teens interested in film, journalism, non-fiction-story telling, interviewing and scriptwriting.

DAY 1: Saturday, February 5, 2011
12 pm – 4 pm
Hands-on workshop with camera instruction, introduction to the artist and exhibition that will be the subject of the group video, interview techniques, and narrative planning

6 pm to 8 pm
Documenting Margarita Cabrera’s exhibition and performance “Pulse and Hammer” at the Sweeney Art Gallery and Culver Center of the Arts, and interviewing community members/participants.

DAY 2: Saturday, February 26, 2011
9 am – 2 pm
Master class on video editing, sound mixing, and final digital output. Ideally, participants will take part in both days to learn about both pre and post production—however, if you can only attend one session, we still welcome your registration.

This workshop is free and open to high school students ages 13-19. Registration is required.

No previous video experience is required. All equipment will be provided by ARTSblock. All students working on the video will receive screen credit and will be invited back for a screening.
To register, contact Kristine Thompson: 951-827-4788 or kthom@ucr.edu

This workshop and other education programs are possible with generous support from the Hearst Foundations and Target Corporation (Riverside Arlington store). This workshop will be led by Scott Hernandez and Jason Chou, UCR graduate students and ARTSblock teaching fellows.
