Lewis and Clark Film Camp 2010

Nine students from the Pacific Northwest participated in this year’s film camp. The students interviewed local and regional experts and gathered oral histories to produce three films.

Planning is underway for the 2011 camp. Film subjects might include the Chinook Nation’s construction of a longhouse at the park’s Middle Village unit, the search for the real Dismal Nitch, and excavation of historic tidal channels along the Netul River.

 

 

 

 

AudioTour of Fort Clatsop

The Audio Tour of Fort Clatsop was written and produced by award winning sound designer Peter B. Lewis for the CarTours Foundation. The 50-minute audio program includes journal readings, sounds and music of the Corps of Discovery and voices of Clatsop and Chinook tribal members, descendants of the native people who helped the explorers make through the winter 200 years ago.

Material was also pulled from the "Trail of Discovery" series of audio programs exploring the Lewis and Clark story along the Columbia River, 1805 - 1806, which was produced by the CarTours Foundation in partnership with the National Park Service at Fort Clatsop (and is on sale in the bookshop at the Visitor Center).

Much of the music for the new audio tour was performed by Daniel Slosberg, well known along the Lewis and Clark Trail as Pierre Cruzatte, the one-eyed boatman and principal fiddler with the expedition. Many of the natural sounds used in the production were recorded within the Park for authenticity.
