Arts MESS 2013: Latino Flash Film Festival Shorts at the Nickelodeon!
October 5, 2013 at 12:30pm, The Nickelodeon will be featuring
"Voices from the Margin" the shorts videos produced
by South Carolina Latino Youth during the LATINO VIDEO 48
HOURS FLASH FESTIVAL. The festival was designed as a workshop
where producer/editor mentors guided young individuals in
the process of producing a video. The chosen theme was “Immigration”
and it was an opportunity for Latino youth to learn the basics
of video filming and editing, as well as shot composition,
filming, audio recording and pre & post video production.
The participants had 48 hours to complete the filming and
editing of their video production. The goal of the workshop
was to empower participants with the needed tools to be able
to create a mass media video that represents their viewpoint
and considerations regarding the Immigration issue in the
USA. The 48 Flash Festival was presented by the National Black
Programming Consortium, South Carolina ETV, Palmetto Luna
Arts, Appleseed Justice Center and The Nickelodeon Theater.
This Saturday, the community at large will have the opportunity
to experience the short films that were produced by SC Latino
Youth. "The idea, process and results of this festival
were amazing" Said Wendy Schneider, Member of the Board
of Directors of Palmetto Luna Arts. "It was really interesting
to witness how Latino youth has experienced the immigration
issue and have them produce a video that relates their very
own personal experiences regarding this important topic. The
results are videos that are very powerful, meaningful and
a window to what's at the heart of this issue: the individuals
affected by immigration"
from the Margin" will be shown this Saturday at 12:30
PM at The Nickelodeon, located on 1607 Main Street, Columbia,
SC 29201. Immediately following the show, there will be a
talk-back panel where youth and mentors will talk about their
experience producing the short videos. Entrance is free. "This
is an excellent opportunity for people interested in the immigration
issue in South Carolina" Said Wendy. "It will provide
you with the opportunity to see how Latino youth are feeling
and approaching this issue. And also give you a chance to
talk to some of the people involved in this remarkable project"
