MEET OUR CLASS OF 2009!!!

SI09 Day 1_30 The fourth installment of the ORF Summer Intensive is up and running in full swing.  While our students are busy learning the ins-and-outs of film production, we thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce you to this year's  Class of 2009.  

In particular, we're excited to embark on a new collaboration with Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti organization and are proud to have four students from Haiti joining our program in the Dominican Republic.  This new venture would not be possible without the full support of the Government of the Dominican Republic.  We are particularly indebted to the suppport of President Leonel Fernandez for making this possible.  

For more information on Yele Haiti, please visit their website:   www.yele.org.
