re:imagine/ATL brings back Green Room
re:imagine/ATL brings the Green Room music video production day camp back to students this July.
During this immersive experience, from July 24-28, students grades 5-12 will learn workforce readiness as they gain skills in lighting, acting, dance, audio engineering, camera operating, editing, and best practices in production. Students also gain professional and soft skills such as networking and business etiquette, build their reel, network with professionals, and produce their own content that will be screened publicly, all under the mentorship of re:imagine/ATL.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Georgia’s film industry and related occupations pay an average salary of $54,082 annually which is $10,000 more than the statewide average for all occupations. Georgia’s booming film sector employs over 30,000 people. Yet according to a recent report by the Georgia Department of Labor, few opportunities exist for Georgia youth to learn these skills.
The past three years over 100 kids and volunteers have been part of the Green Room. Over 25 music videos have been produced for bands including, Hero the Band, Dot.s, Ruby Velle & the Soulphonics, Jimi Cravity, and Kick the Robot. Some videos even involve 360 virtual reality technology. Partners and mentors include professionals from Turner, Mailchimp, Atlanta Film Partners, Tube, Magick Lantern and other local production studios.
