Summer camp is in session!  You're welcome to wear your flip-flops and shorts, but we won't be making macramé plant-hangers in this camp -- instead, we'll be learning all about using video for communication purposes. 

Video is the communicator’s ultimate storytelling tool, whether used for social media, digital streaming, advertising, feature-length productions or other communication and marketing applications.

How do you take full advantage of video’s capabilities, whether working with a large budget or on a shoestring? Find out at the IABC Arkansas Summer Camp, June 29!

Many well-known motion pictures have Arkansas connections: the opening scene of "Gone with the Wind" showcasing North Little Rock’s Old Mill, a fictional terrorist attack in "Under Siege" singeing the state capitol’s dome during filming, and multiple Arkansas Delta towns serving as the setting for "Mud," just to name a few.

Kathryn TuckerOur keynote speaker, Kathryn Tucker – executive director of the Arkansas Cinema Society – will discuss the state of film in Arkansas today and the storytelling connection between feature length film and video production for communication and marketing.

 Kathryn Francis Tucker, a Little Rock Native and sixth generation Arkansan, began her career in filmmaking as a photo editor for Miramax Films in 2002, working on films including" Kill Bill," "Chicago," "Gangs of New York" and "Frida."

After leaving Miramax, Kathryn produced the independent film "Loggerheads," which was accepted into the Sundance Dramatic Competition in 2005. In 2006, she was accepted in the Directors Guild Training Program, where she worked on television series and features films.

Kathryn’s recent projects include partnering with the Miller brothers to produce "All the Birds Have Flown South" and producing the feature film "Antiquities" alongside Graham Gordy, Daniel Campbell, Gary Newton and Jayme Lemons. "Antiquities" was shot entirely on location in Little Rock and North Little Rock in 2016, and will premier June 16 at the Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. Kathryn is also finishing a documentary about former Gov. Mike Beebe, which she directed for AETN. 

In addition to our featured speaker Kathryn Tucker, Summer Camp '18 will present video production experts, who will share their tips and tricks to help you create great video to meet your needs according your resources. Plus, our lunchtime panel will explore using video for social media.
