Take 2 Creative Camp Movie Projects

Here’s a huge update from the Take 2 Creative Camp!

These are the movies that the teens worked on. They made scripts and created these stories. For these projects, they were randomly assigned a genre and a test to both fail and pass (Bechdel or Deggans) in two different scenarios while retaining the plot. Here are the plots…

The Haunted Hallway (Horror-Bechdel Test): There’s a mysterious legend about a hallway while at the same time, some girls try to prank the boys while playing up the scary legend.

The Math Test (Comedy-Bechdel Test): There’s a typical math test and a girl’s inner conscious tries to convince her to check out a boy in the class…or a taco depending on which version you watch.

Wandering In Circles (Drama-Deggans Test): Some friends get lost in downtown and they try to find each other in this setting. The ending doesn’t come as planned for some of them.

Tarantula Man (Action-Deggans Test): Trouble looms as some muggers try to harass some normal citizens. It’s up to Tarantula Man to save the day with his agility and venom strings.

Thanks to everyone at Take 2 and YWCA for pulling this off in a matter of 3 weeks.

Take 2 Creative Camp Film Trailer

I was involved in doing something with the Take 2 Creative Camp Program.

The teens are working on short films that both pass and fail either the Bechdel Test or the Deggans Test when it comes to writing stories with female characters or minority characters. They’re randomly assigned a genre and had to create scripts for their project. I filmed and edited this quick little trailer to promote the Take 2 Program and their project.
