Jake Hoyungowa and Deidra Peaches, two Native American independent filmmakers and owners of Paper Rocket Productions, are encouraging young artists from Native communities to get their cameras rolling and tell their stories.
This summer, Paper Rocket Productions is hosting a series of FREE multi-media workshops in four locations across Navajo Nation. Geared toward students ages 10-25, the workshops take a project-based approach to address each area of production, starting by shooting raw footage and ending with a polished film.
It’s the overall creativity, all the technical aspects that go into it. That’s all really fun to me.
