Mosley Clopton is extremely passionate about helping youth find their voice. This is why she created “Digital Magic,” a hands-on, fun-filled adventure into the world of documentary filmmaking. Participants learn the components of research, social studies, mathematics, history, reading, language, interaction, and critical thinking to tell their own stories. The program is designed to build meaningful skill sets and confidence for each student, while also learning the art of transforming stories into film. The program is easily tailored to any learning environment.
