St. Alban’s: The Shift

The Shift worked at LIFT to
give their youth participants an understanding of editing on Final Cut Pro and hands on learning with the software.  With the help of LIFT facilities, the
youth learned quickly and worked diligently to create the first cut of their
own documentary they had shot the previous week. Working at individual Final
Cut workstations at LIFT in 3 hours, they reduced 6 hours of footage down to 35
minutes. Their work can be seen here. The Shift is looking forward to being back at LIFT in the summer
with another youth project.


The Shift 

The SHIFT is a Youth Film
and Media initiative that explores various art forms as tools of self-expression
and social justice. The program consists of weekly hands-on workshops led by
award winning artists/activists from different disciplines. Together we will
decipher the power of our visual culture and exercise conscious expression
through the creation of high-quality films.
