MYPLACE | MY STORY is an opportunity for teens to create short, personal films utilizing professional multimedia technologies.

Participants write and record personal narratives about their world, stories about what that they have experienced and what they care: their homes, families, friends, neighborhoods and schools.

Films are created with still images and original video under the supervision of experienced videographers and editors who assist in illustrating the stories written by the students. The results are powerful, personal films fully expressing the young filmmakers’ worldviews. This workshop is designed to be a safe place with all of the tools provided to help young artists express their feelings and perspectives about the world around them.

Three weeks after the program is finished, the films are presented on the big screen to an audience of family, friends and supporters at the Smith Rafael Film Center.

The program is free and includes lunch for all 5 days of the workshop and reimbursement of transportation costs to workshop sites if needed.
