STA Video Exploration Program

posted in: Artist Mentors, Artists, Blog, Partner News | 0

For 8 straight Tuesday afternoons (October 7 – December 2) an upstairs classroom in North Minneapolis bristles with the energy of 11 Sojourner Truth Academy students and 3 STA staff members.   The goal is to corral the student’s efforts into writing, shooting and editing original short films. The program will end with a screening of the film for STA students and staff (and of course…popcorn).

Two common themes have emerged thus far; basketball & ninjas.  Before you jump to any conclusions that this is gonna be just another derivative basketball-throwing ninja musical…well I dare say, you’re wrong.  Actually I have no idea where these short films are gonna land.  And that’s the glorious process of it all!  Tune back in December to see the final films.
