What comes to mind when you think of flight? Maybe it’s that time there was terrible turbulence on your flight, straight out of Snakes on a Plane. Maybe it’s the time you dreamt of becoming a stork. This summer, our Creative Media + Tech programs made art inspired by flight.
Street Team Audio Storytelling explored interviewing, collecting ambient sound and production to create audio stories. Take a listen to a playlist of stories inspired by rain, space, an iconic restaurant on Bennington St. and all the airplanes the carry goods across long distances:
Along with Audio Storytelling, our Creative Filmmaking and Hello, It’s Me [radio drama] programs daydreamed about flight this summer too. The groups visited Constitution Beach in Eastie, where they took in the sights and sounds of airplanes on the Logan tarmac and the birds finding a habitat near the water. The beach provided an environment to discuss ambient sound and capture documentary video footage.
Creative Filmmaking took flight to a whole new level with a short drama about a stuffed animal zombie take over. Good thing Geana was on hand with the antidote. We’ve been grounded again, to share this work with you:
A great summer of outdoor classes and new media work came to a close with a community dinner and presentation of our youths’ creativity. We look forward to more mixed media and crazy stories in the fall.
