SAVANNAH, Ga. – All Walks of Life (AWOL) youth film and photography program known as My Block is now accepting My Blockregistrations from Savannah-Chatham youth ages 12-18 interested in film and photojournalism careers. Enrollments will be accepted through March 3rd with class dates from March 4-July 15, 2013. The program will culminate with a Summer Youth Film Festival showcasing works produced by the group.

The film and video production class, titled “My Block”, is a spring to summer-long program that provides students with an introduction to the various aspects of film production and photography, including camera operation, editing, script-writing, direction and basic engineering for lighting and sound. Working as a team, students are engaged in pre-production planning, scripting and storyboarding, as well as production and direction of music videos and short films, with possible advancement to producing and editing segments for AWOL’s monthly television show, The Chop Shop. In the post-production stage, students gain first-hand experience using industry standard tools and technology, including PhotoShop, Avid Express, Final Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects and ProTools. The class is project-based, with students taking turns working in different roles – such as camera operator or lighting technician – while working to complete music videos or issue-based short films.

Classes will be held on 2-3 days per week during evening hours from 6-pm and some Saturdays. “We are really excited about this years program which will be headed by our newest addition to the AWOL family, Ms. Linda Reno. Linda brings a wealth of amazing experience in photojournalism which will contribute greatly to how youth utilize new technologies to reach vast social networks with key messages focused on everything from cyber bullying to food justice”, Davena Jordan Executive Director.
