It was a festive early summer evening at the Windup Space, when Tom Hall spoke with Baltimore’s youngest filmmakers.   This month’s Screen Test featured members of  Wide Angle Youth Media, an organization that teaches media skills to help Baltimore’s young people tell their stories.

We hear from David Sloan, a Production Coordinator at Wide Angle.  We also talk with Da’El Clapperton, a home-schooled student who works with the middle school program, called Baltimore Speaks Out!  She acted in and helped to write the film Bullying In School, and wrote the film Human Rights in Middle East Baltimore.

Also involved in the program are Eric Matthews, Jr., who graduated from Mt. St. Joseph High School last year, and has just completed his freshman year at Morgan State University.  He acted in and helped to edit the film Texaholic, directed by Sumayyah Hyman.

You may be able to help Wide Angle with a new project they’re working on: they want to collect stories of dealing with public transit in Baltimore — the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Call them with you MTA stories at 877-525-8237.

And on Tuesday night, June 7th, you’ll have a chance to see the work of the students who are involved in Wide Angle Youth Media at their annual  Video Extravaganza.  It takes place at the Central Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library at 5:30.

Also to check out: the band Lands and Peoples, whose people Caleb Moore designed our snazzy Screen Test poster.
