This introspective film project asked students to explore one aspect of who they are, and show how it has a profound impact on them. The students began by writing a two-page essay on their topics. The essay then became the basis of a monologue for their films. Then, the students studied the basics of documentary film and critiqued other current youth-produced media before shooting, editing, and presenting their own films. Six filmmakers were chosen to present their work at the 2014 Green Mountain Film Festival’s Student Showcase in Montpelier.
