Ball Out This Summer
Amon Hartley, Tyriq Hall, Daryl Norris, Baltimore Polytechnic Institute
A 11th grade student at Poly who wants to play basketball has never made his high school basketball team. He puts in work and mentions what the game has done to him. He talks to the school's varsity basketball coach and how the game of basketball has impacted him. For the kid who has never played high school basketball, what is next ? All he knows is he has to "Ball Out This Summer."

Identity Pie
Ayanna White, Wide Angle Youth Media
Everyone has an identity that is intersectional, but what would happen if we started embracing that fact? With my video I would like for it’s viewers to reach a common ground, and respect the fact that we are the same in the sense that we are so different.

Projection of Me
Jannah Muhammad. Wide Angle Youth Media
A projection of me is about my life growing up Muslim. Growing up I was bullied for being Muslim, my classmates would say that Trump is going to get me and that I should go back to my country. I hope that after you watch my video you will be more aware of how people who are different get treated. If you witness someone getting bullied after watching this video, will you stop it?

Spectrum

"Spectrum" contains over two years of footage edited in order of the colors of the rainbow. Color is a prevalent component in my art, including in my films, paintings, and collages. This film depicts my everlasting need to add more colors in each piece than my last.

Lyla Mzayek, G.W. Carver School for Arts and Technology
Mr. FloppyDogMan was previously a children's entertainment icon, but is now beaten down and unwanted by the public eye. He conducts real life street interviews about the nature of following your dreams, and asks himself if he can follow his dream and make it back to stardom. The film takes form partially as a mockumentary, and partially as an actual documentary.
