Students to learn filmmaking techniques and secrets

DUNCAN — Geoffrey Smith, a freelance in the sports media industry for ESPN and Fox Sports will instruct the third Video and Filmmaker Camp in Duncan beginning Monday.

Morning sessions for guest ages 11-13 will be held from 9 a.m. to noon. Ages 14 to adult will be from 1-4 p.m. Sessions will be held daily from July 7-11 at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center.

Smith, who works in all areas of the TV and film industry in Oklahoma, is an artist-in-residence for the Oklahoma Arts Council and the Arts Council of Oklahoma City. He has instructed this camp since 2002 at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, and has instructed Duncanites for the last three years.

Those involved in the camp will learn how to shoot, edit and complete video during the camp under Smith’s instruction. Students will also learn to write a script for their video and will do all of the acting for their production.

Leah Mulkey, education coordinator for the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, said students attending the camp look forward to learning from Smith.

“All the students are excited about the process and enjoy working with Geoffrey,” she said.

Mulkey said that at the end of the camp, students will be able to present their production.

“The video will be presented to parents, friends and visitors to the museum on Friday, July 11 on the Experience Theater screen,” she said.

The deadline to enroll is today. Those interested can call or visit the center to enroll. The cost is $100 for members and $150 for non-members for the entire session.

For more information or to register, contact Mulkey at or call 580-252-6692.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?
