Windsong Pictures, Inc.
Windsong Pictures is a nonprofit 501©(3) educational motion picture company founded in 1975. The Windsong Pictures Academy is the only student organization that offers an extensive opportunity of this magnitude. Students from many area schools and across the country create, research, write, cast, costume, film, edit, and produce full length feature and short motion pictures involving hundreds of students and community members.

In other words students experience real life learning opportunities.
Windsong Pictures Mission Statement
The purpose of Windsong Pictures is to stimulate and encourage students and community members to explore the limitless potential that exists in the creative and integrated learning process through the making of motion picture productions and serving the needy in the community.
With a humble beginning in 1975, through Windsong Pictures, students and adults create short and full-length movie productions which is a process that initiates collaborative, interdisciplinary, project based learning opportunities for students of all ages.
