The Educational Video Center (EVC) is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative New Media Arts Apprenticeship for NYC teens. Combining EVC’s media arts curriculum with digital animation and graphic design skills, this two-part apprenticeship teaches youth to “remix” footage from EVC's award-winning archives of youth produced media and create an interactive social issue trans-media website. This new equipment and design software are funded in part through a TechGrant from the TechFoundation.
EVC is now accepting applications for Basic and Advanced Youth Doc Workshops for this spring semester. Interviews will be held in February. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
