PA Pages
With the help of a small, very focused grant from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County, the ATC has nearly completed our next level of do-it-yourself (DYI) youth media empowerment; this project aligns with our goal of shifting youth from being consumers of media to being creators of it. With the help of PAHS student Jimi Bove, as well as some AUES middle school student input, we are creating the Point Arena Pages, an ATC media project archive, using server technology emulating the design principals of online places, such as MySpace, YouTube, and FaceBook. We have compiled an extensive archive of youth projects, including movies, audio recordings of poems and original songs, and digital art, and are in the process of creating a template for youth PA Pages users. When this archive/server is complete, ATC instructors will offer classes/ongoing instruction on how to become users of the Point Arena Pages Media Portal, including simple movie making with I-Movie and Final Cut Pro, Photoshop digital art creation, and making songs with GarageBand.
