Doing What We Do: Positive Peer Productions Answers "Why is 'the environment' important?"
February 3, 2014
The youth that make up EMEAC's Positive Peer Productions often get questions on how they "do what they do." That is, how did they create the various "What's Mixing?" videos? What is the process they used to create storyboards? Or to shoot the footage? Or finally get the videos up online so that community members can see them?
We decided to create a series of videos that would answer these questions. This video below shows the second Positive Peer Productions meeting at Palmer Park Preparatory Academy in Detroit, Michigan. During this session, the youth worked to unpack the question "Why is 'the environment' important?" The depth and complexity of their answers astonished even us!
Eventually, these youth will use their immense knowledge to create and shape media messages for their peers and younger children as well as their parents, caregivers and educators!
