More Information About FRAME

FRAME Beacon Fall 16 Group Shot Last DayFRAME is designed for students considering a career in the media arts. Guided by Spark’s team of professional producers, Spark students work with local business and nonprofit clients on every step of the creative marketing process, from the initial concept pitch through post-production; refining, editing, and responding to feedback along the way. The creative work produced in the FRAME Workshop will be of a professional caliber and will reflect the young media makers’ commitment to quality, attention to detail, and serious dedication to collaboration.

During the six-week course, these burgeoning filmmakers will learn to set high personal and professional standards and develop the practical job skills necessary to independently pursue additional freelance production work. Youth will gain client-based work experience, further refine their filmmaking skills using professional-level equipment and technology, and build both their portfolios and professional relationships. Furthermore, the professional business training, communication skills, and portfolio students acquire in the FRAME program will help them in any career path they choose to follow.
