This project was created in Digital Boot Camp.
Digital Boot Camp is a paid summer internship program for local teens and young adults, aged 15-24. This immersive digital media program shares key aspects of digital media literacy and video production skills while giving interns the tools to apply the knowledge they gain to their own creative work. Interns produce original short-form documentaries, go on field trips to meet and greet with digital media thought leaders, and receive a minimum wage stipend for their efforts. As they hone their digital media production skills, they work in teams to produce short video documentaries about local businesses.
