MYPLACE | MY STORY is an opportunity for teens to create personal short films utilizing professional multimedia technologies. This five-day intensive workshop uses the model of digital storytelling pioneered by the Center for Digital Storytelling (now StoryCenter) in Berkeley, California. Supervised and assisted by experienced media makers, participants write and record personal video narratives about their own lives and experiences and the things they are most inspired by or care about, related to their homes, families, friends, neighborhoods and schools. The results are powerful, personal films that express the young filmmakers’ worldviews.
The finished films are presented on the big screen at the Smith Rafael Film Center one month after the workshop for an audience of family, friends and supporters, with a Q&A and reception to follow.
The program is FREE and includes all the necessary media tools and training, lunch for all five days of the workshop, and reimbursement of transportation costs to the workshop site, if needed.
