This summer, 16 talented young artists will become filmmakers. Working with industry pros and world class gear, they will make movies that change the world.
Registration is now open for Poject Youth Doc 2012 (PYD), and we couldn’t be more excited! By turning the camera inward, teenage PYD participants explore issues important to their lives and the lives of other project members. Each production team sees a project through from inception to premiere. Past projects have focused on diverse topics such as the history of Native American Boarding Schools, flash mobs, deaf culture, and LGBTQ youth. This year, in partnership with Mozilla (Firefox), we are adding training in cutting-edge, interactive media design utilizing technology only being offered to the a handful of media arts programs around the country.
Space is extremely limited, so encourage the young people in your life to apply now to secure their spot!
