York StoryKids show off what they've learned

York Dispatch

Three students from local photographer Randy Flaum's York StoryKids project held a showing Sunday, Feb. 11, at Martin Library to display what they've learned.

Through York StoryKids, Flaum teaches visual story-telling, using still photography and video.

Each of the students — Emory Henz, 10, of Stewartstown; Brennen Speal, 13, of West York; and Anthony Beard of York — selected a person whose story they wanted to tell. Henz selected a swimming instructor, Speal a school teacher who started a coffee house, and Beard chose a female auto mechanic.

"I learned a lot of things in the class, like the shakiness, how to keep it (camera) still," Henz said.


Flaum has a few classes in the works for 2018, including a project called "Brag About," which will task students with producing a video of something in York County that they think is special.

The project will be held in conjunction with the Cultural Alliance of York County to help promote the nonprofit's e-branding of the county.
