Learn a wide array of video production techniques using professional cameras, equipment, and software, all while making a great documentary about our community. The Documentary Class is a video production program for area pre-teens/teens, grades 5-12. The program combines media literacy and video production as students learn to produce short documentaries on a community topic of their choosing. The media instructors will act as executive producers, while the students write, direct, shoot, and edit in small production crews.

Participants in this class will explore their own racial and cultural identities in relation to art making and analyze media through a social justice lens. Then, they will work in teams to create videos representing the “Reel Truth” of their lives in these modern and media-making times.

The Documentary Class will run every Thursday starting January 12 to June 1, 2017 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. There is a $100.00 fee for program participation.
