It’s a wrap! We are hosting a showcase of student films from the summer filmmaking intensive, “Film, Art, Change: Making Movies to Make a Difference,” July 31, 2015 at 2pm, Kellen Auditorium, The New School, 66 5th Ave, NYC. My colleague Joel Schlemowitz, teaching assistant Daryl Meador and I very much enjoyed working with this group of talented, energetic and engaged pre-college students. Please join us in celebrating their hard work and achievements. Public reception to follow after the screening.
About the program: Combining 16mm filmmaking craft with high definition (HD) digital techniques and tools, the intensive immerses students in the history and practice of making movies. Students learn to communicate through the unique language of cinema and how to leverage its power to question, provoke, educate, delight, amaze, and change. Students work collaboratively to create meaningful and artful short film projects. This is the inaugural year for this program at the School of Media Studies.
