Experiencing Interruptions?

The STARS Program

The STARS Program video is an informational documentary. It serves the purpose of providing a medium to inform parents, educators and the community, about an innovative life changing program for young adults with cognitive disabilities, to transition into the working world and learn practical life skills. There was a strong need to exhibit this information by actually filming the students and the employers, in order to help the parents fully understand the benefits of this program. It will also be used as a way to engage potentail employers.

I chose to submit the STARS documentary because it benefits young adults with disabilities. I intend to continue to work on similar social impact films that help others share their voice and tell their stories through film.
