Youth FX is an intensive hands-on program designed to introduce young people aged 14-19 to the technical and creative aspects of digital film making by offering a thorough overview of the production process from script to screen. We are located in the South End of Albany, NY and are fiscally sponsored by Grand Street Community Arts.
Focusing on visual storytelling, artistic expression and performance, participants create digital video projects in various genres, including documentary, narrative short ﬁction and public service announcements. Youth FX participants work with experienced media instructors, ﬁlmmakers and artists to learn the various aspects of digital video production such as cinematography, editing, sound, and lighting.
Youth FX primarily works with young people who reside in the South End, Arbor Hill and West Hill neighborhoods of Albany, NY, areas that have been historically under served and in need of meaningful opportunities for training and engagement in new digital media technology. The skills they are learning not only enables them to be more creative and express their ideas, but they are also valuable skills that are in high demand in today’s technology based world. Youth FX participants engage in their communities by creating documentary and short ﬁction ﬁlms that reﬂect their understanding and vision of the world around them. For some our program is a fun way to be creative with their peers, and for others it is an introduction and immersion into a potential career path.
