Free Videography Workshop: My Kentucky

Saturday November 14, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - Saturday November 21, 2020 @ 4:30 pm EST

On the left, a man dressed in a backward black baseball cap and t-shirt on the left uses a video camera on a tripod and a woman on the right with blue-streaked dark hair and in a black t-shirt holds a piece of paper in front of the videocamera lens. In the background are green trees and darker green hills with clouds nestled among them.

Inspired by photographer Wendy Ewald and a new documentary from Appalshop and POV called, “Portraits and Dreams,” we’re offering Kentuckians a set of workshops with the theme, “My Kentucky.”

In these virtual workshops, you will learn how to see your environments and the people around you in a new way. Discover how incorporating a sense of storytelling into your videos can elevate your work.

    • Description: Appalshop’s student videographers really dig deep to capture the Kentucky stories in universal issues such as drug use, reproductive-health access, and LGBTQ rights.
    • Ages: Ages 16+ (with kids under age 18 accompanied by an adult)
    • Instructors: Appalshop
    • Dates (workshop consists of two parts):
      • PART A: Sat., Nov. 14 at 3-4:30 pm | Instruction, discussion, homework assignments
      • PART B: Sat., Nov. 21 at 3-4:30 pm | Homework critique
