The Capri’s Northside Cellphone Filmmakers course is free and open to people (age 18+) who have stories to tell and want to tell them well – using cellphone cameras. Participants will work with three renowned, local filmmakers and storytellers: E.G. Bailey, D.A. Bullock and Sha Cage.
Experimental Shorts with Sha Cage: Wednesday mornings beginning April 7 through the beginning of May.
Personal Mini-Documentaries with E.G. Bailey: early evenings on Thursdays beginning April 22 and 29 and resuming again for the month of June.
Social Justice Documentaries with D.A. Bullock: Saturday mornings in June through the beginning of July.
“Our goal is to make filmmaking as accessible as possible so people can tell stories from their own lives.”— E.G. Bailey.
The remainder of the coursework will be offered in the spring and summer, and schedules will be based on participants’ preferences. Spring sessions will be held mostly online, with some optional in-person ‘meet and greets.’ Some in-person sessions are planned for the summer as well and as possible.
“I’m excited to demystify film with honest sharing, experimentation, and collaboration – many areas our community doesn’t always have the luxury to indulge in.”— Sha Cage
The course is nearly fully booked so register soon! Questions may be directed to project leaders through the online registration form. Please note that the schedule is subject to change.
This program was funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Here’s some beautiful storytelling and inspiration for you to take this course. I Love is a love poem to the Twin Cities by Truthmaze, directed by E.G. Bailey and produced by E.G. and Sha Cage.Share
