This program is designed to teach and guide students from the conception and pre-production phase of video projects into the production phase. Students are given specific roles such as producer, director, camera operator and art director, and learn to use a camera and other video production equipment as well as how to develop an idea and turn it into an realized project. The final product is a DVD that students present at the end-of-session celebrations. Desi Washington, the Director of Media Youth Television, has been offering this and other programs in the AfterZones and at Olneyville Community Schools for several years.
