Film Festival 2017
Posted 05/17/2017 09:15PM

In the 2016-2017 school year, the Digital Imaging classes have been a part of numerous juried art shows and competitions (both student and professional), as well as having the opportunity to observe many local and international films, photographic exhibitions and artistic performances. In the classroom, we have gone from learning the fundamental skills of photography through handmade pinhole and 35mm film cameras. We have taken the skills we learned from photography and evolved them into the film world, focusing on making stop motion animation films, and promotional videos for our school.

Advanced Digital Imaging
This year, the overall theme for the advanced digital imaging classes was Urban Folk­lore. Urban Folklore is a legend, myth, or tale, deriving from popular culture that usually has macabre and dark elements to it.
A select few students from the advanced classes focused on the art of documentary filmmaking, ending with a product focusing on the March 2017 mudslides in Peru.
