Do you have a passion for movies/film, movie/film production, using online tools to produce, edit or create content? Are you a film maker, involved in production/editing and/or creating some form of video content? If you are willing to impart your experience and knowledge and enjoy working with youth, this is the initiative for you!

I thought if I could find someone who could approach things in a more “hands on” or visual way—it could really work for the student. This could happen by screen sharing ideas or walking him through the steps of how to do certain things—watching the mentor create or edit for example or by watching online tutorials together.
