In 2013, Hook Arts Media collaborated with Red Hook Initiative, the South Brooklyn Community High School, and Good Shepherd Services to launch a summer filmmaking intensive called Digital Boot Camp. Digital Boot Camp provides local teens and young adults with 80 hours of rigorous instruction in digital filmmaking. The program culminates in several mini-documentaries about local businesses and social service organizations.
Digital Boot Camp program includes in-school filmmaking residencies at NYC high schools as well as community-based media programs. All participants earn hourly wages for their participation in the program, made possible by the Red Hook Initiative and the South Brooklyn Community High School’s Learning to Work program.
to Attend the Digital Boot Camp Screening
Digital Boot Camp students are hard at work, learning and applying the professional film production cycle to their original works. Throughout this process, they’ve been investigating the issues that most compel and impact them and identifying the organizations dedicated to addressing those issues. At the end of the program, they will present 3-4 original short documentaries. Each film will follow a different nonprofit’s efforts to improve the lives of New Yorkers. Join us on Monday, August 5th to see stories that change!
Following the screening, attendees can enjoy refreshments, a talkback with our filmmakers, and more films by our advanced track of filmmakers in Digital Connections.
