Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

At the end of this project, we want 100% of participants to learn the tangible skills of filming and editing documentaries, and be able to list them on their resumes. We also want at least 80% of participants to contribute to group discussion reflecting on their discoveries, challenges during the creation process and be able to express satisfaction with their experience and identify new artistic skills. Evaluation of the Teen Videographer program successes, shortcomings and opportunities for growth will be led by Z Puppets, teaching artists and project staff, who will facilitate and respond to debriefing sessions. To assess our impact and our adherence to our goals, we will track demographic information (age, race, gender etc.), and qualitative information including creative skills gained and participant feedback on the experience.

Measurable Outcome(s)

100% of participants reported that they learned the tangible skills of filmmaking and confirmed that they would list the experience on professional resumes. All 5 interns demonstrated their own individual artistic voice with their work and set more challenging goals from 1st to 2nd assignment.
