Adobe Youth Voices Documentary Showcase

Posted: November 24, 2012 in The Beat
What is Hip Hop?  What makes two people fall in love?  What defines a relationship between a big brother and little brother?  What is the difference between living in the City and the Suburb?  How can we overcome discrimination through dance?  What’s the Computer Clubhouse?  What brings us together as human beings?  
Seven youth interns came together at the Computer Clubhouse to answer these questions through short documentaries.  Immanuel Jones, Elizabeth O’Connor, Shaila Abbot, Laura Correra, Soleen Ghahraman, Omar Omar, and Sara Lynch met each Saturday for six weeks to participate in the Adobe Youth Voices Documentary Internship.  Many came in with little knowledge of how to develop a storyboard, film, or edit video.  But each intern left with a confidence in the pre-production, production, and post-production process.  They learned how to ask difficult questions, to stray out of their comfort zone, and challenge their ideas of the world.  With the help of guest speakers involved in short documentaries and video, the interns created meaningful and quality works.
