"Let's make a PSA" workshops sponsored by NPMTC taught Community Transition Students how to produce a PSA using a Sony HD camera, interview techniques and editing with Final Cut ProX. Students are a part of a Portland Public School program to support job and living skills in the community. Two PSA's were filmed and will soon be available for viewing on NPMTC website and on Community Access stations. Fourteen students participated in four workshops and two labs. Pictured are CTP students with their Certificates of Completion, NPMTC trainers and PPS teachers and staff. The project was sponsored in part by The Black United Fund of Oregon and The Skanner Foundation. For more information on "Let's Make a PSA" workshops, contact NPMTC at 503-285-5555 x 521.
