ELKHART — Plans for WNIT’s community-based documentary on Elkhart are coming together, but they still need videographers for the project.

“Our Town: Elkhart” will begin production in a few weeks, but organizers need more volunteer videographers to help tell the stories.

Volunteers will receive some training from WNIT’s production staff and then use their own home camcorders to help create video scrapbooks of stories about Elkhart.

WNIT’s staff will then combine the footage with interviews producers have with the volunteer videographers. Ultimately, the video and interviews will be professionally edited into an hour-long documentary.

Anyone interested should call WNIT at 574-675-9648 or email wnit@wnit.org.

A videographer’s class will be held June 12 at the Elkhart County Convention and Visitors Bureau where volunteers will learn about shot composition, how to select topics of interest and will then choose assignments for the project.

WNIT is a not-for-profit public television station and has profiled other area towns, including Goshen, in recent years.
