One of ACMA’s core objectives is to provide educational opportunities and mentorship programs that inspire our future generations of Asian and Pacific Islander filmmakers, producers, writers, directors and media technicians. ACMA offers young adults, ages 18-25 years old, a unique opportunity to participate, at no cost to them, in a vocational media internship program called TAKE ONE.
By providing these youth from this under-served community, regardless of their financial background, opportunities to learn hands-on television and film production vocational skills as well as gain valuable leadership, teamwork, self-development skills, we believe TAKE ONE can also foster a better sense of pride and self-identity within their communities. We also encourage them to create original ideas and projects based on their own perspectives and experiences as Asian Pacific Islanders that can even possibly help to inspire and shape the perspectives others that can even affect the futures of their communities.
