The Diocese of Trenton will sponsor its first RE:IMAGE Film Makers Workshop for high school students who have an interest in filmaking and want to learn about developing their skills and talents. Open to any high school student (ages 14-18) who resides or attends a parish or school in Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth or Ocean Counties, the workshop will be presented by the radio station WHYY as part of its Y101 — Documentary Workshop and will take place Oct. 1, in the Hamilton Public Media Commons, 150 N. 6th Street, Philadelphia.
This workshop will provide students with the opportunity to make a documentary style film using WHYY production equipment under the tutelage of experienced media instructors. The workshop will provide instruction on documentary film making, opportunity for man on the street interviews and editing of the final product.
The aim of the workshop is to introduce the world of filmmaking to high school students, with an emphasis on using the medium to reflect the glory of God in the world and humanity. Students attending the workshop will be encouraged to use this workshop training when they later produce their own film to enter in the RE:IMAGE Film Festival, which will take place May 6 in the Algonquin Theatre in Manasquan. (www.reimagefilmfestival.com).
The cost for the workshop is $15 per person, which will include the workshop, lunch and optional transportation (location TBA) to Philadelphia. Students who attend the workshop and later submit a film for the RE:IMAGE Film Festival will have their contest entry fee waived.
Participation is limited; students will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Parental permission is required. The deadline for registration is Sept. 21. To register, contact Patrick Dolan, Office of Radio and Television, Diocese of Trenton, 609-406-7405, [email protected].
