Even though school hasn't started some students are signing up for the after school film production class MyFi (Media Youth Film Initiative).

Last year, MyFi students' first production called "Imagine", about high school friendships, how to make them, and the importance of them. Other films made were: "Sorry" about the consequences of violence, and "Family" in transition. As part of a Production crew the students learned screenplay writing, acting and directing as well as some of the more technical aspects of the craft such as operating a camera, lighting a set, recording sound and editing film.

MyFi instructor, local filmmaker and Professor of Communications at Villanova University, Hezekiah Lewis was impressed with the diligences and creativity of the students. "Filmmakers are essentially storytellers and I believe every kid has a compelling story to share with the world". Darryl Ridgeway, vice president of BOWSTRING STUDIOS and CEO of Blue Diamond Entertainment Group, also worked with students.

MyFi is a partnership between the Media Arts Council and the Media Youth Center, traditionally a place where kids have enjoyed playing sports. Center Executive Director K. Brent Hill says, "Last year's films were amazing. The students clearly had a top notch learning experience and produced well crafted films we all enjoyed. I'm looking forward to seeing this year's films."

Classes meet Thursdays from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at the Media Youth Center, starting September 19th through November 21st, 2013. Tuition is $225.00 and there are scholarships available. For registration or more information contact the Media Youth Center at (610) 566 5877 or visit www.mediayouthcenter.org and www.mediaartscouncil.org.
