Personal Documentaries - Peoples Academy

Project Description

This documentary film project was a collaboration with Peoples Academy, and 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, which became the basis of monologues for their films. Next, students studied the basics of documentary film, and critiqued other current youth-media, before shooting, editing and presenting their own films. Two filmmakers, Dylan and Isaac, were chosen to present their work at the Green Mountain Film Festival’s Student Showcase in Montpelier.
