Jan 10th and 18th at 7pm. Feb 7th and 15th at 7pm and 20th and 23rd at 3pm. March 8th and 27th at 7pm.

Youth Movie Making Class Series This four part series will take the young film maker through all the steps necessary to create a short film. From the concept, to creating a storyboard, to script writing, to learning the “Tech” of cameras, lighting and sound, then on to working with a crew and editing. This class will touch on all aspects of production. The class series is open to young people age 10-14. This class is free. For more info or to sign up contact mark@lexmedia.org.

The class dates are: Feb 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd from 11am – 2pm.

Television News Reporting and News Gathering Class In this class you will first learn some of the technical aspects of production including, cameras, microphones and lighting. Then we get into the who, what, when, where, why and how of television journalism. We will start off by critiquing news packages from recent broadcasts and discussing their merits and faults. From there we’ll review the essentials of unbiased journalism…including objectivity, curiosity, interviewing skills and compelling storytelling.

Then it’s your turn. Class members will team up to cover an event or story complete with interviews and video footage. Once you’ve got your story in the camera, it’s time to write a script and edit your story with guidance from the teacher.

Our last class in the series will be a showcase and critique of student news packages. And we may even put them together into LexMedia’s first news show for distribution on our channels.

Students should be prepared to spend time outside of the class schedule shooting their news story.

Heather Aveson will be teaching the class. She brings a wealth of experience to LexMedia. Heather is currently the News Director at ACMi in Arlington producing a weekly newscast. Prior to that she produced Somerville Neighborhood News producing in depth coverage of major urban issues and mentored young journalists. She began her career as a News Editor and Producer on the 10 O’clock News with Christopher Lydon at WGBH, where she learned how to look beyond the obvious story and meet high journalist standards. Heather has also worked in broadcast news in Baltimore and Atlanta.

This series will be held on four Wednesday evenings: March 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th. The class runs from 7pm – 9pm at LexMedia. The total cost is $60. To sign up or for more info email us at: mark@lexmedia.org

Summer Kids Movie Making Classes This summer 10 to 12 kids will gather at LexMedia (at Avalon) to make a movie or a series of TV shorts. They will take part in every aspect of production. It starts with a concept that we agree on, then we develop that concept and add characters, we then write the script and develop the story. And that’s only the first day! The next 4 days are spent refining what we started, rehearsing, learning to use the cameras and sound equipment and shooting the scenes. This is a hands on class. During this time the kids work together as a team. Collaboration, mutual respect and fun are the main goals of this one week class series…. That and an amazing high quality HD production! Cost $300. For more details contact mark@lexmedia.org or call 781-862-5388.

The dates are: Aug 20th – 24th. 11am-4pm. Open to 10-13 year olds.

DON’T MISS OUT – REGISTER FOR BOYS & GIRLS SPRING LACROSSE NOW!

There are 3 things you should know about the sport of LACROSSE:

1.       LACROSSE is known as the “Fastest Sport on Two Feet”
2.       LACROSSE is the fastest growing sport in the US
3.       Registration for spring LACROSSE is only open for a few more weeks at www.lexingtonlax.org

Lexington Youth Lacrosse is open to all skill levels, has both a boy’s and girl’s program, and is organized into divisions by age: Grade 1, Grade 2, Under 11 (3rd & 4th) , Under 13 (5th & 6th), and Under 15 (7th & 8th).

Our program is dedicated to introducing, teaching, and expanding youth lacrosse through our integrated and age based programs, which provide a fun, competitive, and instructional environment.

Lacrosse is complementary to soccer, hockey, and basketball, as it is a continuous-play team sport that reinforces and advances common offensive and defensive concepts.

Too often we hear parents say they don’t know the sport so they never introduced it to their children. You don’t have to know the sport – that’s what Lexington Youth Lacrosse is here for!
