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.
Here’s a video I was involved in recently.
At the Take 2 Creative Camp, there was a garage sale fundraiser for the program outside. It was in the heart of Downtown Elgin and everyone sold various clothes, shoes, toys, video games, and baby supplies to raise money for the Take 2 Creative Camp. It was quite fun. The footage was done by by Korisa of Mad Dash Productions and some of the teens. I provided the ukulele instrumental for the video. Also, yes…you do briefly see me in some shots playing the ukulele or walking around.
I know I usually don’t post on Fridays with the Autumn Peal blog, but I wanted to share a video I helped out with. This is from Take 2 Creative Camp which is a YWCA Elgin program where teens do video production and creative projects. I filmed some of the segments and I did the background music for it.
Each one gave their own personal stories about being bullied, being a bully, or being a bystander. These stories were powerful and I’m glad to have been a part of this project.

It’s Curtis. I will let you know that the Autumn Peal Blog and the other blogs I manage will have a stricter schedule and not post as much content per week.
I’ll still post Throwback Thursday videos and photos.
Shutterbug Saturday will still go on.
I will only post on Tuesday if I have any new videos around.
I had the honor to interview Steve Barnes & The Hazy Sparrow. I asked various questions involving the origins of their songs, their philosophy on music, how they got started playing instruments, and some other fun questions.
