Film camp coming to Flower’s Cove

Northern Pen - - EDITORIAL - FLOWER’S COVE, NL

The St. John’s In­ter­na­tional Women’s Film Fes­ti­val will be pre­sent­ing FRAMED Canon Richards Memorial Acad­emy through the Art­sNL’s Art­sS­marts pro­gram.

Now in its 16th year, the FRAMED Film Ed­u­ca­tion Se­ries offers hands-on, high-qual­ity pro­fes­sional film­mak­ing camps in or­der to en­cour­age, sup­port and train peo­ple in the craft and busi­ness of film­mak­ing.

Led by pro­fes­sional film­mak­ers, the camp starts at the ba­sics with ex­plain­ing the struc­ture and in­ner work­ings of a film set and crew, then goes on to in­clude a gear work­shop day, shoot­ing days, edit­ing, and screen­ing of the fi­nal film.

The FRAMED Canon Richards Memorial Acad­emy camp will take place May 15-19 in Flower’s Cove. Over the course of five days, 16 stu­dents from Canon Richards Memorial Acad­emy’s Grade 8 class will work with film­maker La­to­nia Hartery and editor Vic­to­ria Wells to cre­ate a short doc­u­men­tary film.

The film will ex­plore what life is like for youth liv­ing on the re­mote and ru­ral North­ern Penin­sula, in­clud­ing what it was like for their par­ents’ gen­er­a­tion, and how things have changed. The stu­dents will re­ceive an in­tro­duc­tion to film­mak­ing — ev­ery step, from script to screen.

La­to­nia Hartery is an award­win­ning pro­ducer, writer and di­rec­tor for both film and tele­vi­sion. She has worked on doc­u­men­taries and film lo­ca­tions around the world in­clud­ing Hong Kong, Lon­don, and New York City.

Vic­to­ria Wells works pri­mar­ily as a video editor and pho­tog­ra­pher, but also has ex­pe­ri­ence with videog­ra­phy, graphic de­sign, tech­ni­cal sup­port and il­lus­tra­tion. Wells is the tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor of the St. John’s In­ter­na­tional Women’s Film Fes­ti­val.

The film will have its of­fi­cial pre­miere at the 28th an­nual St. John’s In­ter­na­tional Women’s Film Fes­ti­val this Oct. 18-22.
