Description
Make a public service announcement commercial from scratch! This is Light House’s eighth year teaming up with a local nonprofit to create a PSA. Light House students will learn about and choose from a pool of over 20 nonprofits they would like to feature, before pitching and storyboarding their concepts. Participants will focus on a way to “hook” the viewer and draw them into the cause. Different video techniques will be used, depending on the project and concept.

*Note: this workshop counts towards Community Service hours.*
