Native Youth Multimedia Workshop @ the Crow Reservation
July 22 @ 12:00 pm - July 28 @ 4:30 pm
The 2019 NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WORKSHOP is partnering with Guardians of Living Water, funded through the Center of American Indian and Rural Health Equity, and conducting a one week workshop from July 22nd – July 27th! The workshop will be conducted in the Crow Reservation. Native youth will be producing digital video projects in various genres, including short documentary, narrative short fiction and public service announcements.
The program is designed to teach acting, writing, directing, camera operation, and video editing. It is intended to teach youth how to produce digital videos that have a logical story line and a professional appearance. The workshop ends with a community screening on the final day at a local venue.
Every year since 2009, the NATIVE YOUTH MULTI-MEDIA WORKSHOP has travelled to reservations throughout North America and Indigenous communities throughout the world to teach youth multimedia skills.
The films produced in the workshop will also be shown in the 13th Annual LA SKINS FEST in November 2019. The purpose of the screening is to encourage Native youth to pursue their new found talents. In November, as part of the film festival, there will also be a scheduled tour of a television network or movie studio. This tour is designed to offer career opportunities to Native youth in the filed of multimedia.
The LA SKINS FEST is a prestigious Native American film festival in Los Angeles sponsored by NBCUniversal, the Walt Disney Company, CBS, Warner Media and more. These screenings encourage the participating youth to pursue their new found talents.
