DUP pi­o­neer mu­seum in­vites pub­lic to sub­mit films about early set­tlers

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Kathy Birch Daugh­ters of Utah Pioneers

The Springville- Maple­ton Com­pany of the Daugh­ters of Utah Pioneers is look­ing for high- qual­ity doc­u­men­taries of pioneers to use in its mu­seum. They must be por­tray­als of the fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als that came to this area be­fore May 10, 1869. Films must be based on pi­o­neer his­to­ries and sto­ries, and can even be about their ar­ti­facts. The group hopes to bring the pioneers “to life” by show­cas­ing th­ese films to peo­ple who visit the mu­seum.

The films can be up to eight min­utes long and must be sub­mit­ted by noon on Satur­day, April 15. Cash prizes of $250 for first place, $100 for sec­ond place and $50 for third place will be given.

Get your group ready and have fun telling their sto­ries. Start your re­search by vis­it­ing the DUP’s mu­seum at 175 S. Main in Springville and pick up a free book about Springville’s his­tory. (Maple­ton was part of Springville at that time.) We are open on Wed­nes­days, Fri­days and Satur­days from 1 to 4 p.m.

If you are in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing, send an email to let us know how many peo­ple are in your group. We will need the name of each per­son in your group and their T-shirt size. By sub­mit­ting an en­try, you give per­mis­sion to the DUP mu­seum to show and up­load your film. This means that all con­tent in your film must be owned by you or you must have per­mis­sion to use the me­dia (mu­sic, pic­tures, etc.) within your film. When your video is com­plete, up­load an H.264 file to Google Drive and email us the link no later than noon on April 15. A panel of judges will se­lect the top three films, which will then be viewed and awarded on April 27 at 7 p.m. at the Springville Pi­o­neer Mu­seum, 175 S. Main. Send ques­tions, group in­for­ma­tion, and video sub­mis­sions to: SpringMapleDUP@gmail.com
