In Transition: Media is an afterschool paid internship program for youth and young adults from Red Hook and other similar low-income neighborhoods aged 16-24. As they hone their digital media production skills, they work in teams to produce short video documentaries on subjects ranging from their personal life goals to feminism to the impacts of contemporary music trends on local youth.
They have been working hard this semester, shooting their projects and going on field trips to learn about possible career paths in the NYC film industry. This year’s projects are:
- Promiscuous, about the word slut and double-standards around sexuality
- So You Want a Job?, an informational video about how to pursue an entry level job
- Keep Dreaming, about the American Dream and the difficulty of finding work as a young person in 2017
- Misconceptions, about how people misjudge one another based off of looks
- After Life, about our anxiety around death and different perspectives on the question of what happens after you die.
RSVP here to see their final projects and support In Transition: Media!
We look forward to seeing you at the screening!
