Adventuresome filmmaking meets theory, technique and environmental education (The Coastal Media Project in The Current)

Each summer, the Coastal Media Project filmmaking bootcamp at UC Santa Barbara culminates with long days and nights of editing and final touches ahead of a public showing of student-crafted documentaries, each an environmental short that’s conceptualized, shot, edited and screened in just nine weeks.

This year’s films reflect a range of storytelling as diverse as the aspiring filmmakers themselves — from marine mammal die offs and a celebrity sea otter to sand sculptures and what could be intriguingly described as Latinx surf club meets Chumash tomol paddle meets Black scientist scuba diver. The films will be screened from 7–9 p.m., Friday, Aug. 25, at the Pollock Theater. The event is free and open to the public; reserved tickets are recommended.
