Past Reel Voices Filmmakers and Projects

Since 2005, Pacific Arts Movement has empowered local high school students to learn the art of documentary filmmaking through the Reel Voices program. This intense, 8-week summer internship helps students become socially-conscious storytellers, learn Adobe Premiere editing, and experience all stages of production and post-production.
