Teen-agers learn film-making at festival

PORT TOWNSEND — Two groups of Jefferson County teen-agers are learning movie-making as part of the Port Townsend Film Festival.

They are taking part in the program “Film on the Fly,” which is being led by semi-retired Port Townsend screenwriter Nancy Alvarez and Seattle free-lance documentary photographer Dana Schuerholz.

The two groups filmed for more than a week and their movies were shown Saturday at the Rose Theatre with the teen-agers talking about their movie-making experiences.

One of the movies, “Shiznit,” was created by a group comprising seven at-risk teen-agers.

The other film, “Beneath the Waves,” was created by 14 teen-agers during seven days in August.

“Beneath the Waves’ told the story of a young man contemplating suicide.
