Showcasing our community initiatives and involvement across our Ting Towns.
Light House Studio and Ting’s gigabit fiber Internet
When you give a child a camera, you can shine a light on a whole community. That kind of sums up the thinking behind Light House Studio, a non-profit located in Charlottesville, VA. Founded in 1999 by a group of local filmmakers, artists and educators, Light House has helped youth create thousands of documentaries, dramas and animated films.
The organization’s main focus is providing mentored workshops in digital filmmaking and exhibition opportunities for their young filmmakers. By enabling youth to learn, by hand, Light House students are challenged to be active participants in the media and storytellers in their own right.
You might have noticed we love all things multimedia here at Ting, and video happens to be a passion of ours too. We provide a Ting gigabit Internet connection at the Light House Studio and the Vinegar Hill Theatre, so today’s young documentarians, filmmakers and animators can work and access valuable digital resources at the speed of light.
We had the chance to chat with Executive Director Deanna Gould, Program Director Joe Vena and Senior Teaching Artist Aaron McGinnis at Light House Studio, and learn about the amazing work this team does in the community.
