Students Plan, Direct, Produce, Record, & Star!

Students learn how to present, communicate, and express point of view on camera while building self-confidence and a sense of team achievement putting together television-style, on-line variety-show segments. Having fun as creators is fundamental in our video production classes. We teach videography – in a fun, accessible way – as students work together on screen and behind-the-scenes to produce real world videos highlighting each other and their interests. 

 

Our afterschool sessions are specially designed to give students the opportunity to create their own television-style variety segments around topics they personally help choose. We start by collaboratively planning each class video – starting with small steps before moving on to progressively more challenging choices including student produced commercials, interviews, on-camera performances, and more. Then week-by-week we dive into production and learn basic television concepts including hosting on camera, lights, sound, visual storytelling, and team work as each student rotates through crew assignments to produce their own television-style variety show segments. 

Our classes are customized for each student, emphasizing fun for our young students as they practice both on camera and behind the scenes, with fun + more in-depth lessons for older kids. Each student also receives a link to their full class video as well as public recognition on our website and social media. Sessions wrap up with a neighborhood screening of their their pre-recorded segment to share with family, friends, and community at our Downtown Studio at 165 Newark Ave in Jersey City. Our 1,500 square foot studio includes "4K" digital video cameras, wireless microphones, multi-aspect lighting equipment, and additional production gear.
