Donate Now to Support Marie and all of the Teens in the Youth Media Program

Mon, 12/30/2013 - 12:29pm

We set an ambitious goal at the beginning of 2013: to raise $50,000 in celebration of CCTV's 25th Anniversary. We are almost there! We have $1,500 left to raise! If you have not yet made a donation, please consider doing so now! Your generous donations help fund our many outreach services and programs, including the Youth Media Program. Read on to learn how this program is having an impact in the life of one Cambridge teen.

Marie's Story

Here at CCTV we do many projects through film. The first projects we completed this fall were personal narratives. Almost every one in the youth program based their project on a family member or loved one. I thought this project was great because most people don't know how much someone means to them until they have to explain why. I really liked this project because I got to see who is important in the lives of people I work with. I thought it was really interesting to hear their reasons of why they picked who they did. They picked that person because he or she impacted them in some way and I thought it was cool to see that through the short films. I chose to focus my project on my baby sister Odlitha Pierre. I chose her because she's really independent for a five-year-old; she knows what she wants to be and where she wants live. She has it all figured out. Plus, she's adorable.

Right now we're learning how to use studio equipment and I think it's pretty cool how every thing happens through the control room. I'm not really sure what the assignment will be right now, but we're practicing how to direct, produce, and create interviews like we see them on TV. So far we've learned what the director, technical director, floor director, and audio person do and how they do it.

I really enjoy working here and I think it's mainly because we're all different with different ideas; if we were all the same it'd just be boring.

If you would like to see my projects, as well my the projects of my peers, there will be a screening of all of our work on Thursday, January 30th, 2014 at 6:30pm at CCTV.
