Shine On, Chicago!

Serving Teens in Underserved Neighborhoods — Using the Shine On Mobile Production Classroom! Shine On, Chicago! is a mobile production classroom designed to teach teens the basics of video production and photography, while creating awareness of the careers available in the television and photo industries. Throughout the year, we offer half-day, 1, 2, and 3-day production & post-production workshops, plus after school and summer boot camp classes. Our programs teach everything from operating HD video and DSLR cameras and lighting to edit in Final Cut Pro X!

The mission of Shine On, Chicago! is to teach high school & middle school students the basics of photography and video production in after school and summer programs.

Through the process of taking pictures and creating videos, teens learn:

• 21st Century digital skills with cameras and computers

• how to work in a team environment

• respect, for themselves and the production equipment
