Film camp students make monument videos
Nineteen students from Central High School participated in a recent week-long residential film camp at Colorado Mesa University.
Students were given the assignment to choose a topic relevant to Colorado National Monument, interview local experts and shoot footage for a two-to-four minute video. The topics chosen included highlighting new rock work on Serpent’s Trail, showcasing the excitement of visitors bicycling Rim Rock Drive, and sharing the monument stories of geology and erosion.
The camp was made possible through a grant from the National Park Foundation and support from the Colorado National Monument Association.
