The Video Camp for Girls takes place in association with the Ottawa Rock Camp for Girls (ORC4G) weekend in November 2015. The camp will provide an opportunity for training in basic video production and video editing for participants aged 13-17.  Under the direction of female instructors and mentors who are professionals in the audio/visual production field, the participants will have the opportunity to create their own videos, and to record and edit a live performance of fellow campers in the Ottawa Rock Camp for girls. The campers will retain copies of the final edited pieces which they can then use in a portfolio, on a resume, or to further their own audio/visual skills in an academic setting. This program seeks to remove socio-economic barriers to training for young women in the technical fields of video production and, to that end, the program will be offered free of charge to the participants. Additionally, this program seeks to establish a set of female role models and mentors to young women and students interested in video production in the community of Ottawa. Maximum 9 participants, Ages 13-17.



This Video’s Camp will take place over 2 weekends at 3 different locations in Ottawa.  The first day will take place on Friday Nov. 6, in the evening at Club SAW, and will be an orientation session & film screening with both Video Campers and Rock Campers in attendance.  The following two days (Sat./Sun.) will take place at Capital Recording Studios alongside the Rock Camp.  There will also be a Rock Camp Concert in the evening on Sunday Nov. 8 at the Bronson Centre (Mac Hall).  Post-production (editing) will take place at SAW Video on Saturday & Sunday Nov. 14 & 15, and the program will end with a screening of the films created.
