We’re proud to present 9 amazing music videos created by youth during our 2nd DIY: Direct it Yourself Youth Music Video Camp!

This summer, between July 30th-Aug. 3rd, 2018, thirteen youth from our community between the ages of 13-21, were given the opportunity to create music videos using songs generously provided by local musicians including Wild Black, Too Soon Monsoon, DAYTRVP, the Faps, Taylor Jade, Factor, Jezebel, and Natural Sympathies.

Through this free workshop, young people learned hands-on filmmaking techniques and skills such as shooting, directing and editing video, stop motion, video collaging, lighting, and more, while being mentored through the process by local musicians, artists, and community leaders. The resulting music videos were screened to a standing-room-only audience on August 3rd, in the PAVED Arts/AKA event space.

This workshop was generously funded through the Community Initiatives Fund and we thank them for their amazing and ongoing support.
