SCATV Summer Video Green Teem Hiring Teens
SCATV’s Next Generation Producers, in collaboration with Groundwork Somerville, is hiring up to 8 high school age youth from Somerville to learn video production skills and produce documentary-style video projects about clean water in Somerville. The group will be led by experienced filmmaker, Gordon Nelson. Each student will receive a stipend of $8/hour for their work.
The teens, ages 14 to 18, will work together to learn about where Somerville gets its drinking water, where rain water goes, how the Mystic River affects Somerville, and the effects of climate change on water. The students will learn to shoot and edit video, and the final projects will be cablecast on Channel 3, posted on the Web, and screened for family and friends. This project is supported by a grant from the Somerville Health Foundation.
The Summer Video Green Team meets for four weeks on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1:00 to 3:00pm from July 10 to August 1 at the SCATV Studio, in the middle of Union Square, Somerville.
For more information, visit our table at the Peace Conference, stop by SCATV at 90 Union Square, call 617-628-8826, or visit www.access-scat.org. Applications must be in by Friday, May 18! Interviews will happen in the following two weeks.
