Video & New Media
Students learn about film production and visual storytelling, sound design, audio remix, and generating digital content for web and social media. They create films and media inspired by their neighborhood, interviews with family or community guests, or their research into historical events or social issues. Students learn to conduct research through interviews and ethnographic observation. Participants share the finished work with the school community and can distribute them through their school’s digital channels. Past Viewfinder projects include the creation of soundscapes and video neighborhood portraits.
