Making Music Videos….Youth Summer Camp Style


Camp Cucalorus is around the corner, sign up your child today for a music video filled summer camp! 

Feast your eyes on a sneak peak of the music video created by our very own campers last year.

Camp Cucalorus is a week-long immersion into the world of music videos for budding filmmakers ages 10-18. Packed with behind the camera training, this summer camp will explore the creative world of music video production and editing. This four-day intensive camp promises to be a one-of-a-kind Cucalorus experience.
With industry professionals at the helm, students will spend one week working in small groups creating music videos for a local band, this year’s band is Justin Lacy and the Swimming Machine
Not your average four-piece band, Justin Lacy and the Swimming Machine offers a bevy of sounds that come from the eclectic collaboration of instruments and musicians. The band, which formed one hot summer night in 2010 when a cohort of friends decided to perform Lacy’s songs for an “Anything goes Acoustic Showcase”, has a sound that mixes folk, jazz, rhythm and blues, rock and a dash of everything else. The band features as many as 10 performers on stage with an array of instruments ranging from the saxophone, trumpet, upright bass, mandolin, banjo, spoons and shakers. Their use of out-of-the box instrumentation, such as tap dancers subbed in for snare drums, are what drives the heart and soul of this musical machine.  
Hands-on instruction from award-winning filmmakers will be paired with demonstrations from local industry veterans. Each student will have an opportunity to work with a variety of cameras, take a turn in front of the camera and learn professional editing software. The band will be performing live at Jengo’s Playhouse, allowing youth to experiment with concert style filming and meet the members of the band. In addition to an immersion in the creative experience, students will get to see their artistic accomplishments in action at the super-special Premier Screening at Jengo’s Playhouse.
Camp Cucalorus will run 9 a.m. – 3 p.m, July 23-26, 2012. Space is limited so apply today! Camp enrollment is $395 and includes: Lunch and snacks for all 4 days, a DVD copy of the finished music video, behind the scenes field trip and 4 tickets to the Premier Screening at Jengo’s Playhouse at 7 p.m. on July 26.
