Join Reichhold Center’s Youth Moviemaking Workshop for this summer’s premiere of “Hide and Seek” on Saturday, July 30th at 6PM at the Reichhold Center for the Arts. This is the tenth movie project since the program began in 2001.

The Youth Moviemaking Workshop is a summer program that challenges young inquisitive and creative minds between the ages of 11 – 16.  Within the first two weeks, students are expected to understand the production process from camera operations, sound and audio techniques to script writing and team building skills. The last three weeks of the program are dedicated to producing their final project that is presented to the public at an open screening at Reichhold Center.

This year, the “Red Carpet Premiere” has a couple added bonuses. The Reichhold Center partnered with the University of the Virgin Islands Music Camp, under the direction of Professor Austin A. Venzen and the School of Visual Arts and Careers, under the leadership of Ms. Barbara Callwood. The UVI Music Camp will conduct a music concert until the sun sets to view the premiere. The School of Visual Arts will have works completed by students their on display. “We want to encourage support for all summer arts programs and this is one way that we can work together to bring the various art forms together, in one big festival”, says interim director, Denise Humphrey. “This is our first experiment. We hope to be able to grow this activity in the future.”

“Hide and Seek” is about a group of kids who go on a camping trip and decide to play hide and seek deep in a forest that is supposedly haunted. While hiding, each camper experiences a life changing moment that is brought about by some supernatural encounter that alters their perception of each other.

The Reichhold Center’s Youth Arts Festival is a free presentation and the entire summer program is made possible through support from Total Petroleum USVI, Seven Seas Water, United Electronics Industries and the VI Council on the Arts.
