EMBEDDED CAMP MEDIA LITERACY VIDEO PRODUCTION
The Generation Connection (TGC) is a one-week traveling day camp in East Nashville, TN where older adults and young people ages 8 to 12 participate in a variety of physical and educational activities designed to connect them to their community, the environment, & each other. Since 2002 The Media Spot (TMS) has partnered with TGC to teach campers the basics of video production through documenting the camp experience. Small groups that include campers (old and young) each TGC activity, then work with TMS and a team of Jr. Counselor editors throughout the day to edit their footage into the Clips of the Day. The traditional final camp event is watching the "Clips" with parents, campers and staff, then publishing the clips to the TGC website. The camp media literacy production process is explained in the TGC 9 Media Literacy Story video on this Channel.

HISTORY OF THE CLIPS OF THE DAY
(CODs on the TGC website: thegenerationconnection.com/cod.php)

Since 2002 The Media Spot (TMS) has partnered with TGC to teach campers the basics of video production through documenting the camp experience. Small groups that include older adults and young campers videotape each TGC activity, then work with Rhys Daunic of TMS and a team of Jr. Counselor editors throughout the day to edit their footage into the Clips of the Day. The traditional final camp event is watching the "Clips" with parents, campers and staff.

The production process promotes media literacy, by encouraging campers and seniors to think critically about how we can use video to communicate what makes this camp special to our audience. TMS emphasizes the analytical decisions campers and seniors make during filming and editing that will affect the message their audience will take away from these videos. In addition to teaching campers how videos are constructed, these moments help make the CODs an authentic memento that frames what makes TGC experiences so great -- like only well-edited video can! See the 2012 Media Literacy Clip below to see how it all works, and watch the archives of clips below dating back to 2002 to see what the campers decided to capture and share with you from their travels!
