How We Serve

Video Production

The core of our program is to teach kids ages 8-12 the magic, art and science of creating engaging and impactful videos and music that echo their own voice.

Audio Production

Children are taught the fundamentals of recording in a modern studio environment. Including voice-overs, sound efx, and original music tracks.

Community Service

Through our outreach and in-school program “How To Make A PSA”, we intend to serve over 400 children per quarter in the City of Decatur and countless other kids in neighboring communities.
