Become a Youth Producer

To become a youth producer, you must be a graduate of The Lab or comparable filmmaking program and be fluent in Premier Pro and video production. Applicants may be asked to submit samples of their work and references.

Classes Meet

Reel Works Productions is not just a class, it’s a real job. Youth Producers work 20 hours a week at a schedule they set with the Executive Producer. Team members meet twice a week for production meetings, attend workshops to strengthen their skills and work directly with paying clients to manage individual projects. Youth Producers are selected for Fall, Spring and Summer sessions.
