2014 Participatory Film & Photography Workshops

Goal: Experience theoretical and practical aspects of creating a participatory documentary in a limited time period that results in a short film to be proud of.

Upcoming Session: May 3-17th

In early 2010 a global team of volunteers rallied support and produced a short film CAPTURE: A WAVES Documentary.  It was accepted to numerous Film Festivals and won Best Film at the Lanzarote Ocean Film Festival in the Canaries.  This project was the official birth of ongoing Digital Arts activities in Lobitos, such as the photography career of Henry Espinoza Panta and audiovisual producing career of Luchito Tinco.

Since then, a crew of amazing people (film makers, artists, photographers – many of the same people from CAPTURE) have connected and have committed to visit Lobitos to further the Digital Arts activities there.

DocuPeru will also be partnering, once again, to share their over 10 years experience making documentaries in Peru.  Nicolas Landa, a friend and mentor to Henry and Luchito, will be in the house to help launch a unique project that participatively builds on past success… stay tuned.

If you’re interested in joining this all-star team to create something new, let us know, we only have a couple spots left.
