Back in paradise. We kicked off our New Media Camp for the Hawaii International Film Festival’s Creative Lab yesterday with an orientation for our six selected participants and mentors followed by a group dinner at Little Village Noodle House in Honolulu’s Chinatown.
And today the real work began. The six participants have to shoot and edit their videos over the course of two days (today and tomorrow) with the guidance of their mentors so they can screen at the New Media Camp event this Saturday. So break a leg to our chosen six: Kimee Balmilero, Julia Nakamoto, Aaron Ng, Victor Nhieu, Startlet Shay and Grant Uchida. And to our mentors for providing guidance and support: Luke Aguinaldo, Gerard Elmore, Anson Ho, Ryan Kawamoto, Lana McKissack, Neil Sadha, Ty Sanga and Brian Watanabe. Let the games
and lack of sleep and abundance of stress commence…
This is the final reminder about our FREE panel this Sunday, October 20. If you’re on Oahu, come on by (info here). Not only will we be screening the six completed shorts by Hawaii’s up-and-coming new media content creators, but we’ll also be presenting a panel on the state of new media moderated by YOMYOMF Network’s Philip W. Chung and featuring GI Joe Retaliation director John M. Chu, YouTuber Lana McKissack and some of our friends at InterTrend Communications who are sponsoring the New Media Camp.
