OMG Cameras Everywhere summer camp returns to London for 2014 - volunteers needed!
Following its hugely successful first outing in the UK in 2013, OMG Cameras Everywhere is returning to London next month for a week-long camp designed to show a group of youngsters the basics of making music videos.
The second coming of OMG Cameras Everywhere in London takes place from August 11th to the 15th 2014 - open for free for a number of 10 to 14 year olds – with a screening at the Rich Mix in London on Sunday, August 17th.
US music video director and OMG founder Isaac Ravishankara will be coming to London to lead this year's camp, and a number of other directors, music video professionals and bands have pledged to be involved. But the OMG London team are looking for more volunteers to help out, even for just half a day, to pass on their expertise to the kids, whether they are directors, art directors, set designers, costume designers or any other skilled creative people.
To apply to be a volunteer, please email the OMG team at firstname.lastname@example.org. While musicians are welcome to get involved, by coming to camp to make videos with the kids, or donate their music to the OMG library.
Students between the ages of 8 and 14 who wish to apply to this year's camp in London can fill out the application form on the OMG website.
OMG Everywhere is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that began in the summer of 2011. With the simple idea that cameras can be used to empower individuals, a few filmmakers (primiarly Ravishankara and DANIELS directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) began hosting week-long moviemaking camps for kids.
