High School Documentary Filmmaking Workshop Outreach
This summer, six downstate high school students participating in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) documented some of what makes Pembroke Township (their community) so unique via three Young Filmmakers Workshops with Matt Wechsler of Hourglass Films.
In June, students learned the fundamentals of filmmaking with iMovie and iPads to document their experiences throughout the summer. In early July, Wechsler monitored student progress. Then students came to Chicago in late July for a final round of editing on iMacs at GEMS World Academy, near Millennium Park. Read more here.
