    Marine Mills Folk School in Marine of St. Croix, MN Invites you to join us Saturday Oct 11 online!

    This class is designed for beginner smart phone filmmakers. Learn simple techniques to improve the quality of your cell phone videos.

    These days, creating a lasting memory can be as easy as pulling a cell phone out of your pocket. Using the video recording function on your cell phones, it has never been easier to make great home movies right in your own backyard. And, by learning a few simple filmmaking tricks like choosing camera angles and frame sizing, and how to utilize natural light, you can learn how to make the most of those captured memories.

    This online, 90-minute course will offer hands-on instruction on how to create your own cell phone video utilizing natural light. 

    This is Part 1 of a 2-part series on filmmaking using a cell phone. This class will teach you how to take the videos for all types of video content: educational films, vlogs, short films, documentaries, you tube videos, and other videos.  Part 2 of this series is a separate class and will focus on “post production” or what to do with the video footage now that you have it. Using iMovie, you will be taught the basic editing skills and techniques. We will further discuss how to upload a video to the internet and share the link with your friends.

    A Letter from the FEAA Board

    No one has been exempt from the ramifications of COVID-19 and the decisions that have been made in the effort to lessen its impact to public health. The Folk Education Association of America recognizes that our network schools in the Folk School Alliance community are under distress, both due to the virus itself and to the shutdowns and quarantines that have been imposed. Many folk schools have had to cancel all spring classes, many have already canceled their summer classes, and many are wondering if they will survive at all. Some have chosen to pivot their instruction to online formats and others have chosen not to. Regardless of the situation our network schools find themselves in, our mission for the FEAA has not changed, and we continue to do all we can to provide support and connection to the people and organizations that make up the Folk School community. Through our mutual support, we are committed to combating the discouragement and fear that so naturally accompanies situations like the pandemic we are all experiencing. Whether you have stayed open, closed temporarily, pivoted to online instruction, or any combination of those solutions, we want you to know that we are with you and we support you. Please stay connected with us through Facebook and any other forum that works for you.

    The Folk Education Association of America often gets calls from journalists and magazine writers wanting more information about the history of folk schools and the emergence of new folk schools.  Elizabeth White, a master's degree student from Syracuse University's Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism program contacted the FEAA/FSA in May in preparation for a capstone project.  The resulting online magazine issue was published in September.  More than other articles recently written about the modern folk school movement, White's article gets it right.  Read the full article by clicking the link below.
