At DUF 2018: FOLKLORICO MEDIA (Ages 14+)
“It is our story, our history, that gives meaning to our art and ignites our passion to continue its practice.” —Antonio Sarabia
Folklorico Media Workshop is a new initiative by Danzantes Unidos meant to encourage participants to take full advantage of technology and various media platforms to promote their passion for dance, tell their stories and share their art. The class to be taught by Antonio Sarabia at Danzantes Unidos Festival is a general overview of the creative principles used to produce effective multimedia and marketing materials. Topics include basic design principles, developing a strong Folklorico group identity, video storytelling, creating a social media presence and taking advantage of technology to produce impactful media on a tight budget.
The class will have two parts: Saturday’s session will focus on the theory and an overview of best practices. Sunday’s session will be the practical application of these principles where students will get to apply what they learned to either document the Danzantes Unidos Festival itself, or work on a specific project for their own group. No prior technical knowledge is required, but an open mind and willingness to take on a challenge is a must. Laptops and some type of video recording device are recommended. Helpful tools if you have have access to them: Adobe Photoshop. iMac with iMovie. DSLR camera. Not required, but we will be talking about these resources.
