Welcome to the 2018 Summer Teen Filmmaking Camp!
This video was produced last year at Cherry Street Films Summer Teen Filmmaking Camps. Leah's story "Sok Dina" was showcased at the Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, November 4th 2017.
Summer is right around the corner and what better way for your teen to spend their summer than attending Cherry Street Film’s summer camps? Each week is focused on creating a youth led video project; from music videos, documentaries, narrative short films, and digital shorts. Our curriculum weaves together a unique understanding that filmmaking is second to storytelling and that our youth have original, authentic stories they can and must share. Students participating this Summer will leave with a solid understanding of the power of storytelling in our contemporary media landscape and how to produce compelling content to share with thire community.
