Historical NoteReturn to Top

Spy Hop Productions is a not-for-profit youth media center specializing in educational solutions through the multimedia arts. Their mission is to cultivate the visions and voices of an emerging generation - via the big screen, the airwaves, and the world-wide-web. Founded in 1999 by Utah natives Rick Wray and Erik Dodd, Spy Hop Productions was created with a vision to empower underserved youth through multimedia arts education and to meet the demands of the community for after-school programming that helps prepare young people for the digital future. With their experience and expertise in education, multimedia production and business management, Mr. Wray and Mr. Dodd successfully developed the organization from a two-person operation to one that now serves over 600 young people a year and employs over 25 full and part-time employees.

In collaboration with community partners such as the Mayor's Office Youth City Program, the Sundance Institute, the University of Utah Youth Education, the Boys and Girls Club, ArtStart Rowland Hall St. Marks, Art Kids, and the Kennedy Center Imagination Celebration of Salt Lake City, Spy Hop Productions provides a creative and dynamic studio environment where young people of all backgrounds actively engage in the production of their own narratives and solutions to the challenges they face. The young participants involved in Spy Hop's programs have worked with mentors and instructors in multiple media arts disciplines including documentary arts, film and video production, radio, web design, 3D graphics, and animation. In 2004, the young producers' creative works reached local and national audiences exceeding two million people.

"It Began West..." - documentary
Exploring the history of non-Latter-Day Saint immigrants to the Salt Lake Valley, this film looks at various factors pulling immigrants toward relocation in Utah such as the Trans Continental Railroad, mining, and factors in their homelands which lured populations from Jewish, Greek, Hispanic, and various other communities. Due to the fact that the LDS Church discouraged its members from working in the mines, the mining industry was a strongly diverse opportunity center for immigrants not associated with the LDS culture. The emigrant population working in the mines created their own community on the west side of town full of "blue collar" workers. Little now remains of these communities and most of the buildings still standing have been gutted or altered so much that there is little left to show little of the emigrant heritage of those working in the mines, smelting, and factories of that area.

Teens attending Highland High School's magnet program for English as a Second Language (ESL), discuss their experiences as students at Highland High School, give their own definitions of the word "refugee," and what the word means to them. The refugee students (particularly those from Somalia) then ask students and teachers what they believe refugees are and what they think about the number of refugee students at Highland High School. Refugee students also discuss peer pressure, acceptance from local students, and the friends and family they left behind when they came to the United States. The refugee students are then followed home to show their homes and to describe their culture, religion, and how those things have been affected since they came to America (see item 7).
