“My internship with @lights_camera_learn gave me a truly unique opportunity that helped me gain knowledge about the career that I want to pursue. The hands-on learning environment working with the children pushed me to get more comfortable in a foreign setting and helped me gain real world knowledge about film production. It was truly an incredible learning opportunity and helped me grow more than I could have imagined” -
“There has always been a magic element in filmmaking and when combined with the beautiful minds of children - in this case our students in Zanzibar, the magic, joy, intensity and fun is amped up to x100!
As adults we tend to lean more towards the critical aspect when making things. But with kids, they’re always thinking creatively and fearlessly: and that’s the best approach when telling a story and making a film.
Zanzibar was amazing. Our students have taught me so much about myself as a storyteller. I’m also amazed at the amount of talent these kids have, these films were ALL them! I’m so proud of every thing we put into this. Thank you @lights_camera_learnfor this joy ride! “ @salmaelshami
"Working with @lights_camera_learn the past month has brought me to schools in Jordan and Palestine teaching kids English through filmmaking. It's been a ton of fun and very rewarding to see them make progress in their English ability like they never could in a classroom. It's even more rewarding now that I've met a young reincarnated Ziggy Stardust. Check out the videos from the trip so far at the link on our Instagram page!"
“Lights, Camera, Learn was a great opportunity to help students in Tunis gain important skills for their futures. I loved their enthusiasm and it was beyond rewarding to watch them blossom into confident English speakers. Lights, Camera, Learn’s unique approach helps students feel comfortable, not only to participate, but to make mistakes without the fear of failure. The students and their families were so grateful for the opportunity, but nothing compared to knowing we helped set them up for success.” @taleastashin
This summer has been unforgettable. I knew after college I wanted to travel and work with children, but never in my wildest dreams was it in such a cornucopia of places, teaching and engaging with the next generations through film. Children are such a blessing and remind me of all we have yet to learn as we grow out of our innocence. Aside from working with kids: celebrating my birthday in Tunis, to France winning the World Cup in Paris, and helping lead LCL in Seville, I have had an incredible summer and can’t wait to see where LCL takes all us interns! @holleryourway
