Mentorship at Märchen Sagen

Category : announcements , posting

This year has been extraordinary.  It has been an eye-opener to watch this little program develop into what it has become.  I am excited, not only because of the promise the future holds, but mainly because I am able to give back so much of my experiences to children.  From the youngest little one who is wanting to make a slime blob stop-motion video to our high-school mentee who is picking up tips and tricks on electronic music production and entrepreneurial skills.  It has always been a goal of mine to develop a mentorship program for kids who are coming up like I did.  Full of artistic ability and desire, but no real college track in mind.  A sense of who I was, but without any real aim to become who I wanted to be.  I wanted to create a program where kids can develop invaluable and in-demand skills in content creation, social media management, video production and entrepreneurship.  With the help of my dedicated team, we have developed a mentorship program proposal outlining our goals.  Please download it, read it and find ways to support, either through Time, Talent or Treasure.

Thank you much for the gifts and great ideas,

“The Landing”-Taking Stop-Motion up a Notch!

New Stop-Motion Trailer

Check out the trailer for a video the kids are working on.  It’s LEGO stop-motion, and it’s called “The Landing”.  It’s centered around a character named Dr. Zorton.  He was mysteriously injured in a lab accident by Batmorph, who just crash landed on a desert planet.  The set was built on a 6 foot table with plenty of play sand.  The kids recorded voice-overs, produced music and learned more about keying green screen footage.  Many of our kids this year are new and have never done ANYTHING like this so it was great exploring this great art form.  Check out their awesome work!

Summer K.A.M.P. Successes!

A First Time for Everything

What a treat it was to host our first year of afternoon enrichment and Summer K.A.M.P.  The majority of our kids during the summer break were from families who have never experienced our program and the kids came ready to work hard!  Daily, we built sets, wrote scripts, filmed, edited, composed scores and sound effects, produced voice-overs, applied special effects or just dreamed a little.  Starting at the beginning of each week with nothing, and ending with some amazing little ideas coming to life was fantastic.  We are thankful for the positive feedback and look forward to serving you all in the Fall!

Summer K.A.M.P. Creations
