PAC 8 Community Media Center is offering 18 video classes this summer. An exciting new addition this year is that PAC 8 will be partnering with PEEC in six of its video sessions.
In the “Outdoor Fun” classes, kids will show their point of view about favorite outdoor locations around Los Alamos. The videos from each class will be combined into a short “Los Alamos Welcomes You” film to be projected in the nature center’s planetarium on a continuous basis. Participants will be involved in various aspects of video production (acting, camera operation, voice-overs, audio, and editing). Each participant will receive a PEEC tee shirt and dvd of the film.
The fee for these classes is $90 for those signing up before May 20. After this date, “Outdoor Fun” classes cost $110. An anonymous donor is offering two half-tuition scholarships, based on need, for the “Outdoor Fun” classes.
PAC 8 also is offering classes in 2-D and 3-D animation, logic music production, GoPro and Drone classes, Google Earth and music videos. The first two sessions of the summer classes will be shot at the Nature Center where the kids will create a short documentary on the new Center. These classes cost $90 and must be paid for at least two weeks before they start.
Class size is limited to six students per teacher. Visit the PAC 8 website at pac8cmc.com for a full schedule of classes. Sign up by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone 505.662.7228 or stop by the studio in the lower level of the community building. PAC 8 is open during construction on the upstairs teen center but major construction will be finished by the time classes start.
