In partnership with Writers In the Schools, Aurora Picture Show's Media Arts Instructors Lindsey Thompson and Camilo Gonzalez worked with students and teachers to create short films from poems written by youth in their WITS program. The students had been working with writer Candy Torres on creative writing projects. Aurora was brought in to collaborate on creating stop-motion animation films from these poems. Paired into groups, each student used a line from one of their poems. We are very proud to present this final product which was the result of much time spent with the students and teachers at the school.
This program was supported in part by The Simmons Foundation and part of the CASE After-‐School Initiative (ASI) Nonprofit Residency
