Lights Camera Discover (LCD) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides underserved youth opportunities to develop confidence, build self-esteem, and learn teamwork by participating in a series of workshops that teach various aspects of performing and digital arts (digital filmmaking, photography, acting, screenwriting, website design, animation).
Lights Camera Discover also provides students the resources to recognize entrepreneurship opportunities in the digital skills (graphic design, web design, filmmaking, game design).
Lights Camera Discover focuses primarily on middle school and high school youth. This age group is particularly problematic, but it is a perfect time for mentoring to be effective.
As part of our efforts to give youth a voice through the media arts, Lights Camera Discover offers an on-going program to train local youth in digital storytelling and animation productions. Lights Camera Discover is an award winning year-round program in which students learn filmmaking and animation basics alongside anti-bullying and social awareness. During our sessions, students get to create projects of their own. As their talents and awareness develops, they create group projects and public service announcements to combat anti-bullying.
