Every summer, Joey Travolta directs two week short film camps at college campuses all over the country for children and teens with autism. The program is designed to develop self-esteem, confidence, social skills and creativity through acting, improvisation, and digital film making within their peer group. This year, Joey has added animation to the mix, with the classes taught by a 16 year old girl with autism named Dani Bowman, who founded her company, Powerlight Studios at age 14 and has been working as an animator professionally ever since. To share her experiences in traveling and working with others with autism, Dani has created a video blog of the experience, four of which will be shared by Autism Speaks over the summer. The first episode is the preview to the first camp in Jacksonville, FL.
