Beginner Media Arts Training

PRO-TV’s TV High partners with select NYC high schools and youth organizations to offer a free after-school program in media literacy and documentary filmmaking. During their time in the program, students learn to analyze and critically engage with various forms of media, then work collaboratively to create an original group documentary about a pressing social issue that matters to them. In the process, students get hands-on experience with all aspects of the filmmaking process, from research, writing, and story development to shooting and editing.

TV High takes place twice per week, after-school, for a 14-week semester, and culminates in a student-produced community screening of the student film at the partner high school. Recent TV High partner high schools include High School for Public Service, Boys & Girls High School, Brooklyn High School for Leadership and Community Service, Bard High School Early College and Harlem Renaissance High School.

Who: NYC students, grades 9-12
Where: Your School or Community Center
When: Twice per week, after school
Length: 14 weeks
