Stand by … lights … camera … action!
Middle and high school students can help create a music video during a six-week session at the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia.
“Kidz@122: Connecting History” is free to students, with the music video to be based on African-American historical figures, exhibitions at the museum and the historical influences of the Jackson Ward neighborhood.
The sessions will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. each Tuesday at the museum, 122 W. Leigh St., beginning Tuesday, July 17, and running through Tuesday, Aug. 21.
Instructors from Life’s Interpretation and J. Hunt Visuals will help students write their scripts, film at Jackson Ward locations and edit their videos, which will be on display at the museum.
Participants must have parental consent, reliable transportation and commit to attend all six sessions. No prior experience is necessary and video equipment will be provided.
Applications are available on the museum’s website, www.blackhistorymuseum.org, and must be submitted by 5 p.m. Monday, July 16.
