At Spectrum Productions we believe in encouraging and supporting the social and creative advancement of youth on the Autism Spectrum. We are committed to providing participants access to all aspects of film production, through the tools, equipment and guidance needed to make personal and collaborative media projects.
We believe that self-expression is the best way to share interests, find passion, and develop social networks. Exposure to film equipment, paired with time to learn at ones own level and capacity, set in a nurturing environment, is what fosters participants trust in their own ideas as valuable and innovative. We commit to providing this creative space for students, and appreciate all ideas, suggesting the best-suited form of digital expression for each project. Students take on the role of director for their creations, with opportunity to complete the technical work independently, or with assistance, depending on their interest and ability.
