Interested in taking your TikTok video to the next level?
Eden Prairie teens have an opportunity to learn how to record and edit videos on their remote devices – free – for TikTok and beyond, from a TV production pro in August.
This summer, Bloomington Community Access Television (BCAT) and Southwest Community Television (SWTV) are partnering for the third time to help teenagers begin making polished looking and sounding videos … with their phones.
“The camp is going virtual this year. We have openings for our August camp,” says BCAT’s video director-instructor Ben Vinar.
In previous years, “campers” have crafted mostly short, comedies that parody newscasts and horror, mystery, and science fiction movies. The videos have been featured on the community access channels in Eden Prairie, Bloomington, and on BCAT’s Youtube Channel and Facebook.

This summer’s video camps are online in response to pandemic protocols.
The two sessions of the August workshop will be pared down from the four day, in-studio camps. They will focus on the “how-to” aspects of recording an editing short videos with phones and other mobile devices.
Teen Video Boot Camp is free and open to youth ages 12 though 18 who live or attend school in Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Hopkins, Richfield, Edina and Bloomington. The interactive, August camp runs via Webex (also free) on August 17th and 26th between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

To register your teen, parents need to contact City of Bloomington Communications production specialist Ben Vinar at 952-563-4980 or firstname.lastname@example.org
