Capture 2014 Seeks Editors And Musicians For Team Selections

Monday, August 4, 2014

Capture: A Community Filmmaking Project is a community arts project that joins community filmmakers with professional editors and musicians to create short films on a specific theme in a 48 hours time. Started in 2013 by the Association for Visual Arts, the project allows for a broad range of participants resulting in a high level of engagement and artful, community-sourced films, said officials.

Each Capture film will have its own interpretation of the theme relevant to the time, place and or event around which the film is created.  The theme of Capture 2014 will be announced at the Capture kickoff event held at Coolidge Park on Friday, Sept. 19, at 5:30 p.m.

Three Capture Creative Teams will produce three short films, complete with original musical scores provided by the paired music team and using video submitted by the community, for screening at the Capture Premeire event on Sunday, Sept. 21, at 5:30 p.m. at the Majestic Theatre.
