My name is Elysha and I am proud to be a former MAPS student of the Irwin and Florence Rosten Foundation. In my 3 years of being in the program I learned everything from camera angles to stage lines, editing, how to hold a boom, a camera, writing scripts and much more. I have become a more social and a brighter thinker . I am so grateful for my teachers for creating such a phenomenal hands on well rounded program. I developed such a strong work ethic from working with fellow students, clients and also well known professionals in the field of media arts. One of my proudest moments of MAPS was helping create a commercial for federal financial aid. Our class took on the project start to finish. The news interviewed us and we later saw our commercial on TV which was so rewarding. I loved being able to write and read scripts and bring them to life. We went on locations to shoot our short and films. We each took on different roles directing, producing and everything in between. I feel so proud to have been a part of a program that has inspired an amazing creative process that turns hard work into a finished project that we can all share forever. MAPS brings students together to work as a team and create beautiful movies, activities, and more for the community. Peter Rosten & the MAPS team goes up and beyond for every student in that program. In our small town there are absolutely no other programs like MAPS!
