It is the end of week six at JuiceMedia! Lots of things have been happening at our space and also in the greater youth media community. Let’s catch up!
Students pitched their ideas for their short films, leading to more planning and writing. We also recently had a screenwriting workshop led by intern Max, and a creative lighting workshop led by intern Sharon.
As they finalize their stories, students are all working hard on their productions.
On March 1st, we were part of the TCYMN MY Reel screening hosted at the Walker Art Center. The night highlighted the diverse and talented group of young filmmakers from around the Twin Cities who submitted their amazing work to a group of youth curators. Several of our youth received awards, including current JuiceMedia crew member, Anna, who won for Best Animation!
William (left) really enjoyed watching everyone’s films. Metamorphosis was his favorite. He also appreciated walking around the Walker beforehand and taking in their exhibits.
Also before the screening, students and mentors had a chance to participate in various media-making activities led by the youth planning committee. Everyone involved shared their imagination and there were a lot of laughs. Some helped make stop motion animation clips, while others had the opportunity to hang out and let loose in front of the giant green screen–the background changed depending on what other participants collaged. And I can’t forget to mention the Pizza Luce pizza.
It was a successful and fun night had by all.
Meanwhile, back at JuiceMedia, the excitement builds around our own films as the combination of talent and creativity come together in anticipation of the final screening in May.
Scripting, filming and editing are all underway. It is very exciting!
