Here’s your child’s chance to write and produce their own videos by joining the one-of-a-kind KIDS-4 program! KIDS-4 is an after-school media production program run by the Sun Prairie Media Center designed for SPASD students in 4th through 8th grade.
In KIDS-4, students are trained in many areas necessary to create their own television and video productions including cameras, lighting, sound, directing, producing, writing, editing, and animation. While students work with adult staff, their creativity is unfiltered and their work is entirely their own. By creating their own media messages, students become smarter and more critical consumers of others’ media messages. Students enrolled in KIDS-4 work after school once a week in ‘crews’ and their work airs on KIDS-4, a 24-hour public access station available on Charter, TDS, Roku and Apple TV devices, as well as streaming on kids4.tv and on the free Sun Prairie Media Center app. Some projects will also air on 103.5 The Sun Community Radio.
The Media Center understands concerns about COVID-19 during these unusual times. The SPMC is taking safety precautions to ensure the continued health of program participants and staff alike. Crew sizes are small and meet requirements of Public Health Madison and Dane County specifications of how many students can gather together.
Registration for new crewmembers opens on August 1. KIDS-4 Registration is available online at www.kids4.tv/kids-4-signup-info/ . KIDS-4 will host an open house on August 16 from 4-6pm. On that day, interested students and families will get the opportunity to tour Sun Prairie Media Center and meet the KIDS-4 staff. The final deadline for registration submission is on September 17. Please keep in mind that registration numbers are limited for this program.
