Student Programs at JRH
The Let’s Film Program offers free comprehensive after school film classes where youth take a hands-on approach to learning how to create short films from pre to post production. Youth who participate in the program learn all aspects of the film making process including acting, sound, lighting, and editing. The youth in the program collectively develop characters with a script, film it and prepare the film for a red-carpet premier for family, friends and the community. Youth are also exposed to creating public service announcements, and the filming of documentaries throughout the program.
