TOE APPALSHOP PROGRAM met with some problems in technical equijMnent, but student
response to their efforts were favorable. The greenhouse project became a focal point of a film
workshop, but timing and equipment failure plagued the workers. The true value of the attempt at

Avinger auditorium looked
more like a film studio than an
auditorium this weekend as a
group of Appalshop represen
tatives taught a group of St.
Andrews student some of the
technicalities of film-making.
A group of seven Ap-
palshoppers. Herb E. Smito,
Marty Newell, Liz Barrett,
Scott Faulkner, Angie
DeBord, Larry Adams, and
Frances Morton began
Friday’s workshop with an in
formal discussion on how and
why Appalshop was begun.
Appalshop, or Appalachian
Film Worksh(^, was started
in 1969 with 0. E. 0. and
American Film Institute fun
dings. It’s general puipose is
to train minority people in the
sMlls of film production.
The second movie ever
M-oduced by Appalshop was
also shown on campus.

The Appalshoppers were in
mutual £igreement that the
aim of the project is to
document what Appalchia
really is. They want to get
across the idea that the
culture is good and they want
to encourage people to stay in
the mountains. They feel that
their films put the region in a
diffrent perspective. Instead
of looking at Appalchians as a
joke, the ouside world will now
accept them as a people who
have a rich culture and want
to share it.
All interested people were
then invited to participate in
learning about video-filming
by actually making a film.
The Appalsh(^ group mingled
with the students to ^ow them
how to handle the equipment
and explain various
techniques of filmmaking.
Saturday’s workshop began
with “In Ya’ Blood,” a
dramatic film about Ap-
plachian young people, and a
film about a community
project. “The Millstone Sew
ing Center.”
The workshop participants
then went, bag and baggage,
to make a film. It was decided
that, since a group of students
