"The documentary was produced at PACTV’s Summer Video Workshop in 2017. The PACTV summer documentary program is a two-week course for local students in 7th, 8th and 9th grade to teach them the start to finish fundamentals of producing a documentary. Over the years, students have put together award winning documentaries about local icons and businesses and that trend will likely continue this year as the kids and instructors focused their attention on Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury. The resulting documentary short explores the concept of aquaculture and sustainable food sources. The students conducted the interviews and shot the documentary at Island Creek Oysters over a period of two days and edited their movie with the help of the PACTV staff. We spoke with instructor Erika Christensen and some of her students about the process of their latest production."
PACTV is offering the summer documentary workshops again in 2018 (details coming in January!) for students entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade (in September 2017). For more information about the program, visit www.pactv.org/summerworkshop.
