Through Nov. 5, high school and middle school students are invited to be part of a filming crew for a program titled The Roaring 20’s: Making the Video! This project is being organized and produced by Julia’s Gallery at the Farnsworth Art Museum and the Strand Theatre, where the film will be premiered at the end of the program. This program is free of charge and limited to 15 participants.

Over 10 weeks this fall, photographer and filmmaker Nicole Marie Fuller, with the aid of a New York City-based production designer and an acting coach, will lead students in the process of making a short, 10-minute film and music video starring the up and coming singer/songwriter Alexis Pastuhov. The 1920’s themed production will use Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as inspiration — complete with zombies. Participants will learn various aspects of the filmmaking process including pre-production, directing, screenwriting, camera work, set photography, sound and post production.

Fuller is an alumna of Maine Media College, where she earned a professional certificate in photography. Fuller’s experience includes the creation of promotional videos for local non-profits, work on various fine art projects and teaching both digital photography and filmmaking in the Midcoast area. She works closely with her students as a mentor and encourages them to think outside of the box. Using unconventional tools and software with a focus on accessibility and affordability, Fuller equips her students with confidence and skills they can use to go on to make their own videos and photographs, long after the programs has ended.
