A model that emphasizes group work, competition, creativity and a student-led environment is used in the classroom. Through a hands-on film program that teaches critical, creative and collaborative thinking, students create films from beginning to end. Students are first introduced to the basic shots and strategies that movie-makers and artists use to tell stories. Students then generate a concept and use public speaking skills to pitch these ideas to the entire class.
Not only do we create films, but we explore cultural theory and help students develop critical and creative thinking skills for engaging in an increasingly participatory media landscape.
The goal is to instill the importance of classical storytelling methods in students. With the help of The Academy of Motion Picture of Arts and the LAUSD Arts Branch, the program teaches visual literacy to encourage active (vs. passive) viewing of media and films. Students are taught to recognize stereotypes and fallacies. In addition, collaboration skills are taught to increase the likelihood of success in creative groups and places beyond the classroom.
