Please check out this video with some of the submissions for the Sent(a)mental Project, created by one of our zine librarians Dylan Scholinski:
Here's a note from Dylan about the video:
Be sure to click the HQ button in the lower part of the panel...this allows you to see it in the best quality (ie. able to read the text)
I would really love to hear your feedback... so let me know what you think.
In addition to that may I request that you please help Sent(a)Mental Studios out by:
1) Forwarding this video on to all your friends and social networks. getting the word out is key.
2) If you have any contacts for speaking engagement or showing opportunities... hook us up.
3) If you find yourself in a good enough place to make any kind of donation and/or submission to the project. Please, we could really use the help and support to keep these projects going.
4) I have attached the images for the Sent(a)Mental Studios Brochure.
Check it out... and if you have access to a copy machine... feel free to print and distribute.
5) check out the website and again let your friends and contacts know about it... and encourage them to do the same.
Check out this Video Zine from the Sent(a)mental Youth Project it's still in progress, but here's a sneak peek and a little bit of info about the youth project!
Sent(a)Mental Studios -Youth Project
Music By - Modest Mouse
Produced and Edited - Dylan Scholinski
Featuring - Various creative expressions from the Mental (St)ealth Class - Facilitated by Dylan Scholinski at The Jefferson County Open School over the 2008-2009 school year.
Sent(a)Mental Studios Youth Project provides open studio hours as well as one-on-one sessions with various Denver Metro at-risk youth , referred by various youth outreach organizations and schools. The project begins with an open hour where artist/founder Dylan Scholinski discusses his life and art. Students then work with Dylan to create their own works ( ie: drawing, painting, writing, music, performances, zines, storytelling, etc. ) to express their own lives and stories; we attempt to catch those that are falling through the cracks of the cracks and to help students reclaim their creative voices and find the power and pride in those voices in a safe and supportive space.
