EXPERIENCE THE HUE COLLECTIVE
The launch of our first initiative was in partnership with DeLand High School, that introduced 16 students of color to the world of post-production, an industry many kids were unaware of. Students learned from a professional editor and assistant editor, A’sia Horne, how to edit with Adobe Premiere, an industry standard software, in weeks time. They also heard from a speaker who was an on air personality for the local radio station in Orlando and also a visual effects artist who has worked in Hollywood. In 2020, during COVID we had to find a new way to teach, so we partnered with MRI located in Baltimore where we taught students around the country virtually for the first time. And in 2021, we taught students from the Daytona Beach Housing Authority program called L.E.A.D and our last camp was in Alabama where we taught students in our last 4-day camp.
STUDENTS LEARN INDUSTRY SOFTWARE AND CAN HEAR FROM SPEAKERS IN THE INDUSTRY.
STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO LEARN HOW TO EDIT IN-PERSON OR VIRTUALLY!
ONCE COMPLETED STUDENTS RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE AND HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF A PROFESSIONAL SOFTWARE
2021 WITH THE HUE COLLECTIVE
As things opened up after COVID Vaccinations began to be available we were able to do two camps teaching Adobe Premiere. Our first camp we had a virtual/in-person camp in Daytona Beach where we worked with the L.E.A.D Center run by the Daytona Beach Housing Authority. Here we taught students who dropped out of high school about a profession that they could pursue.
The second camp we taught students on location in Fairfield, Alabama how to edit in Premiere. At this particular camp we partnered with a local school, Fairfield High Preparatory School, and even taught two of the teachers the software to continue student education at the school. While striving to work as safely as possible in the midst of a pandemic we still introduced more students to the software of Adobe Premiere and to the career of editing.
WORKING WITH L.E.A.D CENTER IN DAYTONA BEACH WE USED LOCAL FACILITIES TO TEACH STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM. STUDENTS WITH ASPIRATIONS TO START THEIR OWN BUSINESS LEARNED HOW THEY COULD USE VIDEO TO PROMOTE THEIR OWN COMPANY.
OUR 2020 VIRTUAL CAMP
Because of the pandemic we quickly had to shift gears for our plans this summer. So this year we launched our first virtual camp utilizing Google Classroom and Zoom. We also partnered with Baltimore organization, Media Rhythm Institute and provided free classes for students across the country. Some students who participated received access to Adobe Premiere software for free for the class if they could not afford it. And because of MRI some students received a free computer to work from home. We also had troubleshooting sessions with students via Facetime or Zoom to help students with questions. Although life shifted our plans we had a great experience with our virtual classes!
STUDENTS WERE PROVIDED WITH FREE ADOBE PREMIERE SOFTWARE TO WORK HOME VIRTUALLY.
SOME STUDENTS THROUGH MRI FUNDING WERE GIVEN A FREE LAPTOP TO LEARN PREMIERE!
STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATED LEARNED TO EDIT PREMIERE AND FINISHED TWO ASSIGNMENTS IN A SEVEN WEEK CLASS.
