The instructor must be a creative and experienced video producer with some teaching experience with teens. The instructor must be an enthusiastic advocate of community media and free speech, and must enjoy working with a diverse group. All the video equipment, class space, and supplies will be provided by Lowell Telecommunications Corp.
