Frankie J. Woods II
Frankie started FDYC back in March 28, 2014 after he felt and saw that there was a need in the community for a mobile youth teen center. As a result of growing up as a troubled teen and experiencing the positive effects of having access to a youth center, as well as having the opportunities to use the media arts as an outlet, Frankie was compelled to bring a mobile media bus to the community that was music/video oriented in order to provide at-risk youth with guidance and career development.
Omar Villalpando was born in San Diego, CA raised in Tijuana, MX, obtained his BA of Art in Photography at Sacramento State. He has had the opportunity to work with different ages and communities in Tijuana, Mexico at a local cultural center mentoring in the Photography field, allowing students to find their goal and path towards achieving success. Now based in Sacramento, CA generating new projects and workshops.
Hello, my name is Ashton Aspley. I’m 22 years old, a United States Marine and a current college student. I’m here to help FDYC by teaching writing and directing for narrative cinema. I am currently working as a writer and director, having written and directed two short films, a handful of shorts and am currently directing my biggest project yet! - I hope you’ll enjoy what I have to share with you and hopefully, I can help provide a stronger direction of what you want to do in your life.
