Thank you for visiting! You are here because you care about our young people and your community. And so do we!
Fourthwall (formerly Stages for Youth) was started primarily to help young people who struggle in traditional education find an alternative path to success. We think they can find that success in filmmaking, digital media and tech. In fact, we know they can thrive in these fields…we have seen it…and want to better prepare them for a bright future in the creative economy and in life.
But many teens face other barriers to success including lack of mentorship, low income, learning disabilities, poor self esteem, and lack of critical 21st Century skills.Some are simply unaware of the opportunity that exists for them and how suited they are to it. As a result, the creative economy is under-represented with the under-represented.
And that’s where you come in. Do you have a video project you need completed? Are you willing to work with our students? Are you willing to be their client?
All of our crews are already experienced in the production process and some have produced multiple, award winning films. Here’s a summary of the processes we will teach our students which they will apply to your project.
In a word…yes. But not much. Whatever you negotiate with your crew, you pay directly to your crew. Fourthwall will provide, at no charge…
What we would like is for you and our elite squadron of all star talent to negotiate a rate that works for you, which would be paid directly to the students. We can work out the technical details later but you get the picture. Just like the real world.
