Short film created as part of an event to announce the new APSI panel (Arts Programming and Sustainability Initiative) partnership with the Kennedy Center (Washington D.C.) “Any Given Child” initiative, which focuses on assisting communities in strengthening and expanding arts education for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
The film was funded by the Community Foundation of the Ozarks and the Springfield Regional Arts Council to highlight current arts programs within the Springfield community as well as annouce the partnership. The film was edited at the Creamery Arts Center and lighting/sound gear* was provided thanks to the Missouri Film Alliance of Springfield.
