DESCRIPTION OF PROJECTS Calvert Marine Museum The CCC volunteer would review audio-visual materials, primarily consisting of oral interviews with “bay folk” and film documentation. From among these materials, the volunteer would identify key items to be converted to a digital format, which will be done by a professional film studio. After conversion, the CCC volunteer will be primarily responsible for selecting excerpts to be edited and will work with a professional videographer in the studio to create suitable film and audio clips for inclusion on the Chestory Archive website. The project aims to enhance the virtual archive website as a resource to promote the cultural aspects of environmental literacy in Maryland.
