Teen Media Arts & Literacy (Part 1)

I just wanted to share some of the results from our Teen Media Arts & Literacy class. The students worked hard, had fun, and learned a lot about the process of making videos. Here's what the first group created:

This movie is what's called an "actuality." Actualities are footage of unscripted people, places, and events as they happen. It actually takes a lot of work to learn how to train the camera.

This is us experimenting with bluescreen techniques, using our footage from the actuality.

For this exercise, we created our sounds first and then video. We weren't supposed to make them go together--just get something interesting. Then we mashed them all together.

If you want to learn how to make stuff like this, e-mail me (Joseph) at!
