We all have a story.
DIY Media is returning to Central High to teach Digital Media to continuing education students in South LA. In this course, students meet twice a week to learn the basics of storyboarding, filming and editing in order to create group and individual films. This year our focus centers on the students’ individual voices and struggles. We started the year with two PSAs about the power of education and self-esteem and will end the course with the creation of individual films with student-selected topics. Maria, a current student, says, “It’s kind of a privilege. This class gives you an opportunity to interact with people in a smaller group to make a film. You get to know people by their individual film/stories.” Juan, a returning Digital Media student adds, “I like this class a lot. It’s my own video. I get to make it the way I want it to be.” Theresa Wu, LTSC’s Digital Media Program Coordinator, teaches this class. “I tell the students, ‘This is your opportunity to speak your voice and be heard. We all have a story. What's yours?’” The class concludes with a screening on March 30th, so soon enough, we will all find out.
