The 8-session class will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from June 11 to July 4, 9am to 10:30am, at the Hawaii Youth Business Center in Woodland Center off Highway 130 (Pahoa Bypass). Natec Penn, HYBCʻs staff instructor and a professional videographer who specializes in short documentaries, will lead the class.
