DROP TV is Back in Action!

This summer at CMP, youth at DROP TV have been learning about media arts and what it takes to make a movie from start to finish. During the first week the students started with the basics, like camera angles and storyboarding. Storyboarding is when you draw out, shot by shot, what is going to appear in your film. Like any good TV show, you need a good intro. The Media Creators, better known as the MCs, took a trip to the DROP House to see what the youth producers were working on.

Here are some photos from our adventure to the DROP House and a sneak peek about what to expect from the DROP TV crew this summer.

Jack, one of the DROP TV veterans, is explaining to the team how to storyboard.

Jack is showing one of the MC’s, Dyasia, what they are storyboarding.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of what Children’s Media Project has to offer. The youth this summer are all full of creative ideas that we can’t wait to share with you. Stay tuned for more updates about new projects by the MC’s and the Drop TV team.
