The mission of the Shaking Ray Levi Society is to nurture and support music, film, and performance art that is challenging, non-traditional, and falls outside the mainstream, in order to help nourish the cultural growth of Chattanooga.

This is done by sponsoring shows by artists recognized on a national and international level, supporting original work by area musicians and filmmakers, and engaging the community through workshops and educational outreach programs.

"Only in our country are our children not receiving the benefits of the dynamic energies taking place in our culture and in the heritage of our culture and so, the work of the Shaking Ray Levi Society in my opinion is very important because they are seeking to provide an alternative to the marketplace dynamics." - composer, saxophonist and MacArthur fellowship recipient Anthony Braxton (video)

"SRLS is a very sound organization that has made a strong contribution to Chattanooga over the years" - Dr. Thomas Wolf, WolfBrown

The Srls is a funded agency of Allied Arts.

us to discuss the possibility of bringing this program to your classroom or event.

For the last four years, Jarrod Whaley has taught video production to students of all ages and in a variety of settings including, but not limited to: classroom workshops in public schools, Summer camps, and after-school programs. The basic premise of the workshop is to provide students with hands-on experience in the production of a short film. Students collaborate to write a story, and then act it out before the camera. Each student is part writer, part actor, and part director. In special situations where sufficient time has been set aside to more thoroughly explore the production process, students may also draw storyboards to flesh out their visual ideas and/or build props, sets, and costumes.

These workshops are completely scalable to the needs of the program or classroom in which they are taught--the amount of classroom time required to teach the workshop can be as little as three hours, or as much as thirty-five or forty, depending upon the situation. In addition, sessions may be scheduled in one block of time, or divided up over any number of days.
