SLA to Host Beginner Nature Documentary Workshop
February 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Find your inner David Attenborough! Join the Squam Lakes Association (SLA) on February 23, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. to create a fun and informative mini-documentary about Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest. Participants will decide what information they would like to highlight in the video based on materials provided at the beginning of the program. We will meet at the SLA at 10:00 a.m. and then carpool to Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest. We will film as we walk along the trails, examining any life or ecosystem that sparks our interest. LRCC member Grace will film (on her iPhone- this is by no means an expert class!) while participants plan the video and take turns in front of the camera. But being on camera is always optional- there are many other ways to participate. Grace will edit the video later and hopefully display it on the SLA website. Come participate in an effort to encourage more folks to get outside and enjoy the beautiful landscape around Squam!
Film is a great way to communicate the beauty and importance of nature to others. This program exists to show that filmmaking and storytelling can be for anyone! Don’t let a lack of experience deter you. Participants should bring warm clothes for walking in the winter woods and a snack/lunch since this program runs through noon. No previous filmmaking experience is required. You don’t need to be a Chamberlain Reynolds expert either- all information to be included in the video can be taken from materials provided during the program.
