Skateboard Filmmaking Course

Our NEW three week skateboard filmmaking course provides a hands-on learning experience for children that focuses on teaching media literacy through the process of filmmaking. Our goal is to empower children by providing the tools necessary to create their own media messages. Through the collaborative process, children build confidence and self-esteem.

Rather than being media consumers, students will be taught to question, evaluate, and understand their media culture.
