Fast Forward is an accelerated, multi-year new media program offered free of charge to qualified high school students. Participants meet weekly, developing a portfolio of work for critique, presentation and distribution.
Over the course of the school year, participants conceive, produce and edit original work in various genres, including narrative, documentary and experimental. Professional filmmakers and media artists are invited as guest artists to work with the students in specific areas, including lighting, documentary production, advanced sound design and computer animation.
