Regentpark.tv, a youth-run Internet station producing catchy, funny, touching videos documenting themes like youth isolation and unemployment for new Canadians.
To inspire Regent Park kids to think about becoming TV producers and editors. “Someone who went through our program now works for MuchMusic as a segment producer.”
“Kids here wouldn’t normally have access to a video camera or an editing suite. Sometimes when they first come, they are very shy, but little by little they become less afraid of being in front of the camera. After a month or so, you see them being themselves. Young people are the only ones in charge here.’’
