The New Orleans Video Access Center, or NOVAC, is hosting teen video camps in East Baton Rouge Parish this summer. The students would be exposed to the basics of video production. This includes learning set design, storyboarding, production and post-production.
There’s only one thing missing, instructors. NOVAC needs local filmmakers who would be able to guide students through these processes. Each summer camp session is one week long for 3 hours a day, Monday-Friday. The pay for instructors is $500 per week for 15 total hours of instruction each week. Applications are now being accepted until April 1st, you can read more about the requirements and how to apply, here.
NOVAC is a nationally recognized non-profit organization based in southeast Louisiana, and a national leader in community-based creative industry workforce development. This means that major studios like HBO, Warner Bros, and Turner have recognized NOVAC for their effectiveness in preparing budding film professionals to enter the film industry. Through this recognition, NOVAC has been able to secure partnerships to help consult on diversity and workforce development training within in the Louisiana community.
Fostering homegrown talent to keep Louisiana’s creative community thriving and retain its status as the “Hollywood of the South”, are great contributions for anyone’s resume and to be a part of the organization would open doors for any individual looking to grow.
