FILM WORKSHOP SUCCESSFUL WITH TSU STUDENTS.
BAHRENBERG, JIM
AN UPWARD BOUND FILM WORKSHOP AT TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY EXPOSED STUDENTS TO FILMS AS A CREATIVE ART FORM, A MEANS OF COMMUNICATION, AND A BASIS FOR DISCUSSING VALUES. IN ADDITION TO VIEWING SEVERAL SHORT, PROFESSIONALLY-DEVELOPED FILMS, STUDENTS WROTE AND PRODUCED TWO OF THEIR OWN. ONE STUDENT-PRODUCED FILM--A LIGHT SHOW--ILLUMINATED THE UNITY OF THE ARTS THROUGH THE USE OF SPECIAL EFFECTS TO COMBINE FILM, MUSIC, PAINTING, AND DANCE. THE OTHER, A FILM ABOUT A MAN CONVICTED OF A CRIME HE DID NOT COMMIT, USED FLASHBACK EXTENSIVELY. WORKSHOP ACTIVITIES INCLUDED (1) LEARNING HOW TO SHOOT AND EDIT FILM, (2) WRITING EFFECTIVE MOVIE SCRIPTS, AND (3) VISITING MUSEUMS TO STUDY DISPLAYS OF PAINTINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHY. STUDENTS USED CAMERAS, PROJECTORS, TAPE-RECORDERS, SPLICERS, DISPLAYS OF MAGAZINE PHOTOGRAPHS, RECORD ALBUMS AND TAPES OFFERING A WIDE SELECTION OF MUSICAL IDEAS AND MOODS, AND REFERENCE BOOKS ON FILM HISTORY, PROJECTION PROCESSES, SOUND, COLOR, SPECIAL EFFECTS, CINEMATOGRAPHY, AND CURRENT TRENDS IN FILM PRODUCTION.
