Filmed on Location 15 July 2013
Local school students and community members engage in a group session in the main shooting studio of the cinema studies program’s media education center. They are among more than 25 participants learning about filmmaking and media literacy through the Apollo Outreach Initiative (AOI). This two-week intensive workshop takes place each June.
Oberlin cinema studies faculty spearhead AOI, with current Oberlin students and alumni serving as mentors. Now in its fifth year, the donor-supported program admits junior high students to adult community members who demonstrate a desire to learn media literacy.
