The AiM Photo/Film Travel and Study Program brings college photographers and filmmakers to New Orleans each year after a seven week course in story idea building, and deeply researching a topic of their choice. Projects are screened/shown in a public venue in the Twin Cities a few months after each trip.
The registration deadline for the New Orleans Travel and Study Program is Friday, March 16th. This year's trip is slated to include many dynamic field trips, including a behind the scenes tour of the Times Picayune newspaper, where photojournalists now create both still and video content, and there is an actual taping studio, for web reporting.
The NOLA program is first and foremost about you and your portfolio or reel upon graduation. Doing this intensive project provides you an opportunity for variety in demonstrating your abilities to potential employers. You are the director, you are the researcher, story editor, and photographer on you own unique project!
