Missing the Otis Music Camp? Cure your winter blues with these amazing videos which were done in collaboration with Mercer University’s Center for Collaborative Journalism at the 2016 Otis Music Camp. About the project, entitled Musicians in the Macon:
Welcome! This site is the result of a collaboration between two summer camps held at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia in 2016: The Otis Redding Foundation’s Otis Music Camp and the Center for Collaborative Journalism’s Digital Media Summer Camp.
Every year, high schoolers (and even a few younger kids) at the Otis camp compose, rehearse, perform and record original songs; at CCJ camp, high schoolers shoot and edit documentary-style videos with accompanying articles and photos. This year, CCJ campers turned their cameras on Otis campers.
