In less than 26 hours, these dedicated youth produced two complete short films through the conceptualization, writing, storyboarding, filming and editing processes.The youth gathered into two teams-Green Team and Red Team-on Friday, Nov. 24 and began discussing what they wanted to produce. The work continued on Saturday, when Green Team finished filming on location at Bushmaster Park.
