Collaboration with Widener University TV – Spring 2011 – By Chester Voices for Change and Widener University TV

In working with Widener University TV (WUTV) and the great volunteers from that organization, several VFC members spent time learning how to make live TV.  The VFC members typically came up with ideas for the programs and hosted talk shows, with greatly appreciated filming, editing, and production from the WUTV crew, but there were also times where VFC members edited or filmed. You can this work on YouTube, or see one example below.


“Drama High” – Fall 2010 – By Chester Voices for Change

The first production by the 2010 After School program for VFC looks at teen issues, drama, friendships, and cliques. In less than 40 hours together, this group learned how to use film equipment and edit, and went on to write a script, rehearse, film, edit, and produce this short film. You can watch the first part of this 2-part series here, but check out our YouTube channel to see the rest.

In July 2010, Chester, Pennsylvania went into a “state of emergency.” This short film shows a bit of what it was like in Chester during that time and offers hope for the city’s future. It was completely created and produced by teen media producers in the Chester Weed & Seed, Team H.Y.P.E. and Chester Voices for Change programs.

In July and August of 2009, ten teens from Chester came together to learn how to make a film that told their stories and raised their voices through youth media production. The result was “Through Our Eyes,” a 45-minute film about teen issues, decision-making, and peer pressure. The first section of the film is included below, but you can watch the entire film in our YouTube Channel’s Playlist by clicking here.
