In this brainstorming and writing/video workshop you will learn how to produce a Public-Service Ad about a social issue you would like to see changed in your city.

BETWEEN THE LINES

Columbia College Chicago's Documenting Social Injustice class brings you "Between the Lines",  an interactive workshop exploring how media portrays youth violence throughout Chicago and how we can change that story. 


We will deconstruct a news story, write a story in our own words and experiences to transform the message and learn how to create a PSA focusing on our new discoveries, exploring resilience and social justice through media advocacy.


Using professional video equipment, you will work in groups to brainstorm, write a script, create a storyboard, and cast your talent. 

After a short rehearsal, we will shoot your 30 second Public Service Ad!
