Students interested in film needed for NA history project

The Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta is looking for a few good high school students with an interest in film.

The Center is working on the North Augusta Legacy Project, coordinated by North Augusta High School senior Joey Baldwin. The project stems from his experiences at Furman University's Emerging Public Leaders program last summer. Each student was asked to return home and take part in a community service project.

As part of Baldwin's goal to create a significant contribution to North Augusta, he is working with the Arts and Heritage Center and the Heritage Council of North Augusta to document stories of citizens who grew up in the community.

High school students who participate in the project will attend a free film workshop on Saturday, Nov. 10. Whether a student is interested in filming as a hobby or as a potential career, the workshop offers information shared by professionals in the film industry.

In exchange for participating in the workshop, students will be asked to commit to helping conduct oral histories of North Augustans. A member of the Heritage Council will accompany each student through the interview process. A public showing of the North Augusta Legacy project will be held in March 2013.

Anyone interested in participating is asked to call Joey Baldwin at 215-7017 or email sjbaldwin94@gmail.com. Registration deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 7.

Those interested may also contact the Arts and Heritage Center, 100 Georgia Ave. Hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the first Saturday of every month from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
