Animate A Way

As part of our efforts to give youth a voice through the media arts, Animate A Way offers an on-going program to train local middle and high school students in digital storytelling and stop-motion animation production. ‘Animate A Way’ is an awesome year-round program in which students learn filmmaking and animation basics alongside domestic violence and social awareness. During weekly 2 hour sessions, students get to create whatever their minds can conjure. As their talents and awareness develops, they create group project public service announcements to combat domestic violence. Animate A Way PSAs are designed to be of the highest quality with the intention to shop them out to film festivals around the world. To watch our PSA’s, visit our YouTube page.
