Video Content Prep Sessions for QC Libraries Annual Teen Video Contest

Teens ages 11 and 19 are invited to attend these sessions at Geneseo Public Library. You should attend if you plan to submit a video to the contest, but you may attend if you are just interested in video production. GPL is offering three opportunities for teens to learn about video production, work on their videos with support from library staff and technology, and get feedback on their videos before they enter. Teens can submit one video to the QC Teen Video Contest per category on their own or as part of a team of up to five friends, with the chance to win $100.

Session 1 - Introduction: Get an introduction to the processes for the QC Video Contest, and an overview of video production and access to online resources to make your video great. You can also get started on your video with the help of library staff and technology.

  • Tuesday, February 4, 4:00-5:00 PM or Saturday, February 9, from 10:00-11:00 AM

Session 2 - Working Session and Feedback: Come to the library to work on your project and take advantage of the expertise of library staff and technology available to make your video great. Show your work in progress to the library and get feedback.

  • Tuesday, March 3, 4:00-5:00 PM
