HOPE for healthy Food

This film examines the issues around food deserts and food insecurities in the Atlanta Metroplitan area. Over the course of 12 weeks, the YMA team met with students from H.O.P.E. to New Heights through Zoom sessions and learned about documentary filmmaking, the elements of a story, interviewing techniques, the basics of researching a topic, and working with film equipment.
During our live production weekends, STUDENTS RECEIVED HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE on digital cameras, sound equipment, and lighting for filmmaking and followed their production plan to complete the project. Our curriculum is aligned to Career and Technical Education Standards in the Arts, Media, and Entertainment pathway for high-paying, highly skilled, and high-growth industry sectors.
We went on field trips to several locations in the Atlanta area and explored the topic in-depth. We were grateful to have a wonderful group of experts from various fields and also an amazing group of students and staff from Booker T. Washington High School and Truly Living Well.
A special thanks to H.O.P.E. to New Heights and our sponsors, AHF and BLACC, for another great project.
The running time for the film is approximately 19 minutes.
"If our stories aren't told by us, they aren't told correctly."
