Add this week to your cart to learn how to produce short documentary films!
“Independent documentary isn't beholden to some of the interests that the mainstream media are influenced by. It's a pathway to renegade, independent reporting in an in-depth, investigative fashion, and it can do so with a compassionate lens; it allows people to speak in a way that is more human than the mainstream media approach.”
Through these weeks we will challenge youth to become citizen journalist; researching subjects, communities, and themselves for captivating stories they are passionate about.
Learn storyboarding, scriptwriting, cinematography, and directing, while experiencing how to use pro audio and video gear. Learn how to edit audio and video using the Adobe Audition & Premiere Pro on the Apple Mac for hard skills in video production!
Youth Produce Digital Stories and Music Videos by Cherry Street Films Students
Cherry Street Film’s Summer Camp is Capped at 20 students: This allows for a more personalized experience and more time with gear and technology for youth.
1:10 Facilitator/Youth Ratio: Within the camp, we will have a 1:10 ratio ensuring help and mentorship is provided for the best youth experience.
Short Film Festival Release Party: At the end of the summer there will be a short film festival that all participants are invited to. This will give youth the opportunity to see their film on the big screen.
Mixed Age Group of Middle and High Schoolers: By having a mixed age, our camps allow for mentorship and leadership between the ages of 12-18 years old.
Mac and Adobe Cloud Skill Building: We utilize Macs and Adobe Cloud services such as Adobe Premiere to Edit our films allowing youth to leave with solid skills they can use later in life for future jobs.
Leadership and Team Building: Youth are expected to collaborate and work together in teams to produce their films. Cherry Street Films will challenge youth to take on leadership positions throughout the process.
Our camp will be located in Downtown Kirkland, 5 minutes from the lake and 10 minutes from the QFC, at the LEADPrep school space. Our camps are Monday-Friday from 9AM-3PM unless otherwise noted (i.e. July 4th). Youth must be between the ages of 11-17 years old to attend Cherry Street Films camps. We currently do not offer transportation services. Families are encouraged to reserve spots earlier than summer to ensure their child has a spot in the weeks desired.
What Kinds of Videos Will We Make This Summer?
No two weeks are the same even if they both focus on documentaries. Our curriculum changes and adapts to the needs of that week’s participants’ interests and experience with unique film challenges to help guide youth projects.
