Wednesday the 15th of July
We met the full group finally.
Our professional work as artists was shared with the twelve participants.
Afterwards, they broke into three groups.
The theme of the next week is Problem Solving.
The first big problem is: Make a coherent short film in a week.
Group 1 Theme: Zombie Horror Comedy with urban themes.
Mykel, Tori-Ann, Victor and Tim
Group 2 Theme: Michael Jackson Tribute Cooking Show
Jackie, Amanda, William and Ruby
Group 3 Theme: Four divergent plots colliding with each other... as experienced with puppets.
Dimetria, Jarrod, Yessica and Laia
Below is a very preliminary draft of a draft of a rough cut.
They were given ten minutes to make a puppet with a moving mouth.
As contributors to the Workforce Reinvestment Act, Trummerkind artists Michael Townsend and Colin Bliss have taken on twelve employees ranging in age from fourteen to twenty. As professional artists Townsend and Bliss hope to impart their own experiences and introduce the participants to a wide variety of applicable job skills.
