This experience has inspired me to go to school for film and audio production
Fourthwall showed me that my dreams were achievable.
I have a confidence in my ability to actually succeed at something and school this fall was much better because of it. I am now looking at colleges with film majors
I love the the idea of furthering their writing skills, collaboration skills, interpersonal skills, at the same time they have fun making a movie. This program builds creativity and innovation.
My son will never forget this experience. It provided a multi layer approach to expose him to the entire filmmaking process, improve and offer new skills, collaborate as part of a team, allow creative freedom and, importantly, help boost his confidence.

”Just the production of one short film, from end to end, introduces the student to a dozen different creative career possibilities. But the production process the student goes through in making that film is unmatched in empowering that same student to develop collaborative, critical thinking, creative problem solving, and communication skills...21st century skills...that every employer requires but students do not yet possess.Frank O'FarrellDirector, Fourthwall Youth Studios
