In documentary, youths explore bond between Troy, Hudson River

"The Sanctuary for Independent Media’s Uptown Summer interns didn’t know much about the ecosystem around them. Armed with cameras and guided by media professionals, they set about learning, exploring and documenting the Hudson River near the nonprofit group's home in North Troy."

High school students in North Troy took up a summer job like no other.

Trillion In Troy

A new piece by the Youth Media Sanctuary! (What would you do with a trillion dollars)

We at Youth Media Sanctuary had a great time over the past few months asking our neighbors “What would you do with a trillion dollars?” After recording their answers we trimmed down the usable answers to 7 minutes, only 3 minutes were allowed for the competition. And so after two hours of final hard-core editing we are proud to present to you “Trillion in Troy.” We hope you enjoy it.

"Trillion in Troy" was created by Youth Media Sanctuary, in the fall of 2013. We made this video to submit to the "If I Had a Trillion Dollars" youth film fe...

Help this North Troy teen filmmaker!

Youth Media Sanctuary producer Madena Henderson is one of 15 youths from across the country selected as a Project VoiceScape contest winner! Help Madena’s piece, "The Haves and the Have-Nots," succeed!

View and vote for Madena's film at http://www.pbs.org/pov/voicescape/2011/madena-henderson-troy-ny.php. Pass it on! She needs our support!

With help from The Sanctuary for Independent Media, Madena has created this inspiring piece, concerning the struggles that today’s youth face when encountering the crippling financial burden of going to college. In Madena’s case, the importance of education prevails--she's enrolled as a nursing student at Hudson Valley Community College!

Project VoiceScape, a collaboration of PBS, POV, Adobe Youth Voices and our local PBS affiliate WMHT, set out to mentor today’s best young documentary filmmakers.

Madena Henderson's documentary "The Haves and the Have Nots" exposes the financial struggles of students going to college today.
