After School Media

Proctors has teamed up with Open Stage Media to offer After School Media, an after school program in filmmaking to engage kids grades 6-8 in fun, project-based, team-building activities.

This engaging program is designed to challenge students to think visually, work as a team and develop media skills crucial to expanding their organizational skills and creativity. Topics range from storyboarding and editing to documentary and news journalism. Students will have the opportunity to act in, direct, write and edit original works, and have them shown on Open Stage Media public access channel 17!

The program runs for two sessions (broken into 9 and 10 week sessions) from October to April (excluding holidays and school breaks). The times are Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00-6:00pm and Wednesday from 3:30-5:30pm.

The After School Media program at Proctors is designed for students

  • interested in filmmaking, video production, on-camera acting
  • who struggle to keep up with tasks
  • who could benefit from an afterschool activity
  • who have a flair for creativity

Ages: 6th - 8th Grade

ELA and Arts curriculum standards are incorporated into projects.
