Due July 31st, 2018 - "On a night just like tonight... In these very woods..."

Campfire stories are another beloved staple of summer camp. They have the power to draw us close AND make us question everyone around us. What's true? What's myth? Does it even really matter so long as someone with an overactive imagination runs screaming back to their bunk at some point in the evening?

If you don't already know, this summer Tongal is hosting a virtual Creative Camp for all of Tongal's community members and everyone is invited to join in on the fun! Each week between now and the end of July, they’re launching a new Creative Camp-themed project designed to fire up your imagination, push your creative boundaries, and build life-long friendships between you and your fellow campers.

Each week during Creative Camp, on Thursday at 12 noon PT, they’ll launch a new challenge. Each challenge will remain open for submissions until the final day of Camp on July 31, at noon PT. Once received and vetted as eligible, each submission will be made viewable on Tongal where Tongal Community members can see and give feedback on your creation. You are highly encouraged to participate in ALL challenges (and if you do, you’ll be eligible for special prizes!), although you’re also perfectly welcome to only participate in the challenges that most interest you.

The goal of this project is to tell a spooky story in a 1-3 minute vlog-style video. What does that mean? Basically, your story must be told from a predominantly first-person perspective (whether you do that as yourself or "in character" is totally up to you). Keep it simple and spare or go full Blair Witch Project, but whatever you do, make our spines tingle. Your story doesn’t have to be true, but it does need to make us want to check under the bunk bed if you want to take home the top prizes.

Creators from all backgrounds and levels of experience are encouraged to participate. Shooting with anything from a smartphone to professional camera gear is A-OK by them.
