Youth Program Begins!

CCTV's School Year Production Program begins this month with 13 Cambridge teens learning video production skills to create original content for our website and channels. The program, which is 13 weeks long, provides teens with a paid opportunity to have a positive and realistic career experience working as a media artist. Program participants become more competent producers of media art and develop a greater sense of connection to and appreciation of their community.

This year, our program will include field trips to local museums, galleries and movie screenings. The teens will learn shot composition, lighting techniques, narrative construction and media literacy skills. They'll also produce narratives, documentary pieces and video remixes. Check out the work of past participants at www.cctvcambridge.org/youth

If you know any teens interested in a paid, after school job as a media maker in training, please contact elisa@cctvcambridge.org.
