As part of an exciting new collaboration last year, Global Kids have been working with high school teens from all over New York City at the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, Queens during the 2006-2007 school year, on a groundbreaking digital moviemaking project. Students are learning Second Life in-person in the after-school Virtual Video Project, and given the unique opportunity to learn a variety of skills that will empower them to become critical thinkers, media producers, and global citizens.
Just yesterday we released the official PSA machinimas produced, created and filmed by the teens in the program. We are thrilled to share their work with you all. These PSA machinimas will also soon be shown at local organizations, schools, and online in teen spaces such as MySpace and other blog sites.
and watch the newly released machinimas!
