Important Updates regarding Summer Youth Media Programming

Greetings SMC staff and members:
Hope you are well! We have a few updates and reminders regarding summer youth programming at SMC…
1. Summer programming begins on June 25th! We will be welcoming over 60 youth participants this summer who will be learning the art of TV production, filmmaking, stop motion animation, and graphic design from 9am-3pm on the following dates:

  • June 25th-29th TV Production
  • July 9th-13th TV Production
  • July 16th-27th Teen Filmmaking Bootcamp
  • August 6th-10th Stop Motion Filmmaking
  • August 13th-17th Memes, GIFs, and Graphic Design
Please note that for most of these camps, we will be using the main studio and edit lab from 9am-3pm and edit computers may be limited. We encourage you to schedule your project editing and filming time after 3pm, though we will do our best to accommodate you on a case by case basis in the early afternoon.
2. We have a number of young people attending our summer programs who have severe allergies to tree nuts and/or peanuts. As such we are asking that you observe our SUMMER NUT FREE at SMC policy. Please see the attached link with a description of what items contain tree nuts.
3. There will also be teen interns working on production projects, so please observe proper language and other etiquette while in the building. If you have any issues with a young person’s behavior or questions as to how to handle a situation involving youth, please reach out to Heather immediately.

Thank you for making SMC an incredible place for all people, including young people, to be creative and passionate media producers!
the SMC team
