"Let's make a PSA" workshops sponsored by NPMTC trained fourteen Community Transition Program participants how to produce a PSA about their program. Students learned use of the HD camera, interview techniques and editing with Final Cut ProX. Students are a part of a Portland Public School program to support job and living skills in the community. Two PSA's were filmed and will soon be available for viewing on NPMTC website and on Community Access stations. Fourteen students participated in four workshops and two labs. Pictured are students with their certificates of completion, NPMTC trainers and PPS teachers and staff. For more information on "Let's Make a PSA" training, contact NPMTC at 503-285-5555 x 521.

scripting; conducting an interview in the field; learning the fundamentals of
field lighting, audio, and camcorder operation; and editing.
