2016 NATIVE YOUTH MEDIA TOUR

The 2018 NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WORKSHOP is partnering with Paramount TV, Paramount Giving, Viacom and the Wellpinit School District at the Spokane Indian Reservation to host a weeklong workshop. Spokane Native youth will be producing digital video projects in various genres, including short documentary, narrative short fiction and public service announcements. The purpose of the program is to establish a year long program offered through the Wellpinit School District. 

The NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WORKSHOP is a week long youth filmmaking program designed to teach acting, writing, directing, camera operation, and video editing. It is intended to teach youth how to produce digital videos that have a logical story line and a professional appearance. The workshop ends with a community screening on the final day at a local venue.

Every year since 2009, the NATIVE YOUTH MULTI-MEDIA WORKSHOP has travelled to reservations throughout North America and Indigenous communities throughout the world to teach youth multimedia skills.

The films produced in the workshop will also be shown in the 12th Annual LA SKINS FEST in November 2018. The LA SKINS FEST is a prestigious Native American film festival in Los Angeles sponsored by NBCUniversal, the Walt Disney Company, CBS, 21st Century FOX and more. These screenings encourage the participating youth to pursue their new found talents.

In November, as part of the film festival, Native youth will be invited to participate in the 2018 NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WEEKEND November 15th -18th.  The program will be offering studios tours, university tours, film screening, film workshop and more. The program is designed to offer career opportunities to Native youth in the filed of TV, Film, and new multimedia
