FlipThis program is perfect for teens of all technological competencies.  If you’re clueless on how to film or edit a video, then you’re in luck…we’ll walk you through each step.  And if you’re an experienced filmmaker, we have the set up for you to exercise your skills and apply advanced techniques to your films.  Either way, it’s bound to be fun.
