It's a simple idea: aspiring filmmakers who want to learn how to tell a story
make a short documentary about an older adult with an inspiring story to tell.
Each "apprentice filmmaker" partners with a professional filmmaker. Together they make a short documentary about a senior citizen, family member, teacher, friend, community leader... anyone and everyone who wants to share a story.
The filmmakers learn everything from pre-production to post-production using professional cameras and editing equipment. Elderly individuals benefit from an interaction that helps decrease the effects of isolation and detachment while encouraging intergenerational cohesion. The audience enjoys a collection of entertaining, original short films.
