Women and Girls in the Media: Garraway Studios
Led by Jacarrea Garraway, 18 year-old student at Boston Latin Academy.
In February of 2016, Jacarrea hosted series of workshops for 8 high-school aged girls to discuss women and the media and teaching the tangible skills of film-making. The workshops took take place over 5 days (20 hours), and participants will learned story-boarding, film editing, and screenwriting to empower women's leadership in the currently male-dominated film industry. You can check out the class' first short film on Youtube! In the fall of 2016, Jacarrea will begin her studies a New York University to pursue her career in the film industry.
Special thanks to Emerson College for their support in screening our film!
