YOUTH FILM WORKSHOP PRODUCTION TO AIR

0

Aug. 15, 2001 – "Faith," a short digital movie produced by young people enrolled in the Reichhold Center for the Arts Youth Moviemaking Workshop this summer, will be telecast Wednesday night on the "Face to Face with Addie Ottley" show. The program airs on WTJX-TV/Channel 12 at 8 p.m.
The 10-minute dramatic movie, written and directed by Richard Sturdivant, a University of Tampa (Fla.) communications major, was shot and edited entirely by participants in the Youth Moviemaking Workshop.
In addition to Sturdivant, workshop participants include Rachel Navarro, Richard Simmonds, Favinn Maynard and Syieda Potter. Reichhold director David Edgecombe, Gerda Morales and Percy Taylor appear in the production.
The workshop gave young people an opportunity to work in front of and behind the Reichhold Digital Video Institute's state-of-the-art cameras — affording them broad-based experience in "what it takes to create a movie," a University of the Virgin Islands release stated.
Financial support for the workshop was provided by the Jean T. Robertson Fund of the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands, Rotary Club II of St. Thomas, and the Peter Gruber Foundation.
