Okanagan Science Centre puts out call for young filmmaker to work on project

The Okanagan Science Centre (OSC) is pleased to announce a call for youth to participate in the creation of a Virtual Museum of Canada Community Memories project, Bruce Aikenhead: Canadian Space Pioneer.

This project requires a local youth with experience and passion in documentary- style film making and editing to work with other committee members to bring to life and preserve the fascinating stories of this important local Canadian.

The project will start in February and requires the individual to participate in committee meetings, filming, and editing of interviews.

Interested youth are invited to submit a letter explaining why they would like to be involved in this project, their experience with creating and editing film, as well as a link or disk containing samples of their work to: info@okscience.ca.

Deadline is Jan. 30.

The OSC Community Memories Project committee will review the submitted letters of interest and meet with short-listed applicants. The successful applicant will be awarded a $500 honorarium for their participation.

Not a youth filmmaker? This project as well as other Okanagan Science Centre projects always welcomes new volunteers.

Call the OSC at 250-545-3644 for info.
