Our second week on campus this summer was even busier than the first!
Perhaps most excitingly, we welcomed our Academy students onto campus for the first time in three years! Two kick-butt crews of high school students traveled from far and wide to join Scott Fuller’s 2-Week Digital Photography workshop and Tom Ryan’s 2-Week Film School workshop. These amazing young creatives dove head first into learning the art and craft of lens-based production and will continue their artistic journeys into next week.
Our adult students were also on campus making amazing art this week. Eddie Soloway’s A Natural Eye students learned to observe and absorb their surroundings before capturing their photographs. Stella Johnson’s students explored how to connect with their subjects and enhance their own photographic styles in her Seeing Maine workshop. And Laurie Klein guided her students through the joys and challenges of working with models and the environment in her Female Form in the Maine Landscape workshop.
Andre Dubus III worked closely with his writing students to delve into their own stories and excavate different ways to express them in his workshop, Stepping Into the Mystery of You.
In the filmmaking department, Brendan Uegama, CSC opened the door to cinematic storytelling for a full group of aspiring cinematography masters in The Art of Cinematography (running again in September!). And in the Production of Scripted Training Videos, Doug Jensen’s students got a taste for writing scripts, auditioning actors, and creating short videos all in one week.
What a week!
