What does TLX Media's Youth Media Program Consist Of?
Our Digital Youth Media Production (D.Y.M.P.) program pairs young aspiring media producers with teaching artists & media professionals in a safe space where students will learn the skills, fundamentals, and techniques necessary to produce their own digital film & photography projects. Students will then apply the knowledge gained to produce professional quality digital media content designed to empower, expand, and influence the minds of other youth! Throughout the course of the program, students will also complete projects and exercises that will further develop their abilities in different aspects of media production (i.e. filming, photography, directing, acting, writing, etc...) Tasks and roles for each project/exercise will be delegated based on personal evaluation in order to build on their natural strengths/weaknesses, enhance collaborative abilities, and foster personal growth/development.
What Are The Benefits of the DYMP Program?
