Green Team 2020 Fall Fellowship Project Description

400 Project Radio Shows Animation

During the summer of 2020, the Green Team Youth Corps Apprentices created two radio shows in partnership with the National Park Service Timucuan Preserve Unit (TIMU). The project is a part of the national 400 Years of African-American History Commission. The Green Team’s radio shows specifically highlight the lives and unique history of six Africans who were enslaved at Kingsley Plantation located in TIMU.

To continue this project, 8-15 Green Team Fellows will work in teams to develop an animation that will bring the radio shows to life. Youth will learn how to respond to a Request for Proposal, principles of design, the fundamentals of the animation process, and they will be introduced to various career pathways around animation.

The program format will be a mix of virtual and in person instruction or 100% virtual. Beginning, October 20, 2020, youth will meet with the Contractor twice a week for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00-6:30pm via Zoom. On Saturday, December 5th & 12th, 2020, youth will attend a workshop from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm to complete their designs with project mentors.

The nine-weeks will culminate on Wednesday, December 16, 2020. Youth will present their animatics before partners, parents, and peers at an end of the semester celebration.
