Students will receive a mystery box with a topic focused on the environment or a social cause depending on the program selected. Within that box will be props to help them tell their story through a short video production they will storyboard, shoot and edit using their smartphone. In addition students will also get access to professional equipment during class time Students should attend class with either an Android or iPhone smartphone with the video editing app “SPLICE” pre-installed. Families of students must be prepared to sign release-waivers as their films will be distributed on social media to help get their story out there. We believe in empowering youth to become leaders in content creation so they can lead the way to help make positive change in our shared world.
