Letters to July

I’ve been teaching film at a theater camp for the past few weeks and had a blast putting together this microproject with my students. A small collection of letters to July by my students (ages 8-12), plus one more from me (age 24).

Inspired by emily-diana-ruth's gorgeous Letters to July series, filmed on location at Camp YATC in Santa Cruz, CA.

Directed & Edited by Yulin Kuang
Shot & Colored by Zack Wallnau
Sound & AC by Christy Morgenroth

Special thanks to Shawn Ryan & John Ainsworth who co-founded and run Camp YATC and who some of you might recognize as the featured couple in the Sonnet 116 episode of I Didn’t Write This.

I’m heading back up to camp in a couple weeks teach at their last session (running August 1-11), so there’s a chance there might be another camp-centric video next month. If you’re between ages 8-18 and interested in exploring the world of theater/performing arts, I’d highly recommend checking out Camp YATC (based in the Santa Cruz Bay Area) - there are still spots left open in their sessions 3 &4! It’s a camp I really wish I could have attended when I was younger.

Much love,

Yulin

So cool that we were asked by NBC to pitch them Talking Marriage with Ryan Bailey and that this was a completely special thing unique to only us and that NBC wasn’t running a development program actively asking for submissions from literally anyone. So cool.

If you missed Emily Diana Ruth & Charlie McDonnell’s mini-film festival at VidCon, INTERMIX, you missed this adorable and articulate short film. Watch Irene Lee, Girl Detective right now. 

Yeah Yulin! And Sean!

Aww, I’m so glad you guys enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing the Irene Lee love! (I just posted a VidCon video about this panel!)

"If you’re here and you’d like to meet me, you can meet me at literally any time. I will be here waiting, waiting to meet you"

Poe gifs! Sean!Poe is my favorite Poe. I’m also sad he wasn’t asked to host the Poetry on YouTube panel but let’s just imagine a world where he was…

"and I’ll keep stabbing and stabbing and stabbing and stabbing ‘til I’m his wife again"

This was a fun moment to direct. “Bored stabbing. Disney stabbing. Dead eyes while stabbing!”

"So, my second day haunting, this guy comes up to me and he’s like ‘so, I’m having a dinner party’. Cool"

I’m so sad my wifi is so crap at camp and this isn’t full loading but I WILL REBLOG ALL THE THINGS USING MY LIMITED TIME WITH WIFI.
