Through these hands-on new media programs, students will create collaborative films from beginning to end. Students are first introduced to the basic shots and strategies that movie-makers and artists use to create moving images. Students then generate a concept and use public speaking skills to pitch these ideas to the entire class.  Welcome to a modernized 50-year-old LAUSD classroom to study films and filmmaking.

Our classroom is a study of digital moviemaking and other forms of new media.  Not only are we creating works of art and exploring cultural theory, but we also help students develop critical and creative thinking skills for engaging in an increasingly participatory media landscape.


The goal is to use cutting-edge technology to teach visual literacy that encourages active (vs. passive) viewing of media and films while also helping students to be creators of media that is thoughtful, honest and original.
