Produced and directed by Maine Media College Professional Certificate Program graduate Kevin Carragher, with production and post production assistance from Chris Lehmann, the project is the result of a summer-long effort to document the dynamic and intensive high school workshops here in Maine.
Kevin, MMW 2009 Post Production Manager, worked with his Post team to interview students and faculty, shooting documentary footage of the students at work – and at play – while overseeing to the daily operations of a busy post production department. They've captured the magic of a teen summer in Maine, where talented young artists come from around the world to share and expand their passion for media arts. The short film culminates in a display of stunning photographic and film work by the YOs themselves.
Like all things Maine Media, this video is a collaboration of talents. In addition to extensive video footage, still photography from MMW faculty and staff, including Massimo Bassano, Tim Broekema, Carrie Pratt, Shea Richards, Kendrick Disch, and Brendan Bullock, is also incorporated in the piece.
Kevin has just returned to Maine to assist Anelisa Garfunkel in teaching the first Seven-week Film Workstudy session of the year.
