This past Sunday, AFSC's Student Career Alternatives Program hosted a “Movie Making Day” for youth. Thanks to WonderRoot for the donation of their space and editing lab, students flexed their creative muscle in storytelling through video.
Those in attendance learned filmic storytelling from start to finish as they explored writing, recording, interviewing, and editing.
Each student personally interviewed, recorded, and edited a story that was uniquely their own. Whilst each story varied in tone, the general motif became asummers gone by as the four reminisced of adventures from a year or so past.
While the students learned a new camera, program, and medium, they more importantly learned a new way of expression and a voice that has existed in them ever-presently.
