OUCARES and Joey Travolta team up for fifth annual Short Film Camp
Oakland University's Center for Autism Research, Education and Support will partner with actor, director and entertainer Joey Travolta, the brother of famed actor John Travolta, to host the fifth annual OUCARES Short Film Camp.
Set for Aug. 16-27, the event gives individuals with autism spectrum disorders an opportunity to work with 10- to 18-year-old siblings and peer buddies in writing, acting in, directing and editing a film of their own. The unique program offers an inclusive setting to support this immersion in the arts.
Camp organizers are seeking volunteers to assist camp participants in the creative process. Volunteers are welcome to help for as little as a day or throughout the two-week camp. Activities will take place daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Pawley Hall on the campus of Oakland University.
On Saturday, Oct. 16, OUCARES will host a Red Carpet Film Premiere night in the Oakland Center. The event, which is open to the public, will showcase the short film produced by camp participants and celebrate their accomplishments.
For more information on the film camp or to volunteer, contact the OUCARES office at (248) 370-2424 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
OUCARES integrates academic course work, knowledge and research with hands-on work in the community to prepare professionals to be leaders in the autism community. Through this work, the organization also provides individuals and families with service and support designed to improve daily living.
