"This program has really boosted Matt's confidence and self esteem. He loves coming to the program every week. He asked me if he could rearrange his work schedule to accommodate attending your classes. He's really dedicated. He loves it."
- Parent of Film Student

"I joined the film program, and we made our first short comedy/horror film, "Pretty Ugly". It was my first time acting as a mean, sassy girl, and it was an awesome, new experience for me...I have gained so many things from filmmaking that I can apply to other situations".
