MY CALIFORNIA NOW: A Legacy Storytelling Workshop
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
8:30-9am: coffee + registration
Do you know someone in your family or community who has an amazing story?
Jump into an action packed workshop where you will have the opportunity to kickstart your own project with award-winning filmmaker Sascha Rice. Paralyzed by the blank page? Baffled by where to begin? Afraid no one cares about your story? Your voice matters and this workshop is a great step to get your project going. If you are further along in your process, Sascha provides a safe space to refine and focus your investigation. We’ll cover key basics, but quickly we’ll plunge deeper and explore the importance of thoughtful research and critical thinking. We’ll work to locate your story in time and place, to better understand how politics, economics, the environment, and culture shaped your subject’s narrative. Whose story do you want to tell?
The workshop is open to filmmakers, journalists, writers, students, housewives, grandparents and anyone who has a story to tell. Please bring a photograph of your subject (if possible.)
This workshop is part of a day long event “The Future State” -- a new series of events hosted by California Watch, a project of the Center for Investigative Reporting. CIR is the nation's oldest nonprofit investigative reporting organization – producing multimedia reporting that enables people to demand accountability from government, corporations and others in power. The Future State event on December 5th will feature the award-winning documentary CALIFORNIA STATE OF MIND: The Legacy of Pat Brown.
Co-presented by The California Film Foundation
