Local video engineers Vintroy and Wayneroy Randall are getting ready to lead a video documentary workshop with students.
On Saturday, 27 October from 11am to 2pm at the George Town Primary School Hall, Wayneroy will introduce students to the world of video documentation, the proper setup and video plan.
The video documentary workshop has been arranged by The New Self-Help Community Foundation, a nonprofit organisation which aims to help teenaged youth develop a sense of self-worth, independence and community spirit. As part of its Project 2012 programme, the foundation is offering a series of training and experience in the arts including video-documentary production, songwriting, poetry, photography and drama, outlining the support young people need in order to be successful.
New Self Help Community Foundation CEO JC Connor tells us that the foundation emphasises the importance of focusing on youth strengths instead of their risk factors.
“The more ways students are able to imagine an idea, the greater their chances of insight. The foundation is pleased to partner with AV Solutions to promote the positive energies of the youth of Cayman,” he says.
The video documentary workshop was originally scheduled for 26 May, but due to inclement weather was postponed until 27 October. The workshop is sponsored by The Cayman Islands Ministry of Health, Environment, Youth, Sports and Culture.
The workshop is limited to 50 participants, ages 10 to 25, so young people are encouraged to register early for this skill building experience.
Interested youth can register by calling 927-4777 or 517-2757.
