Film Making in Schools.
Lowndes, Douglas
A program which used practical film study to extend powers of observation and comment and to help young people (ages 12 through 16) develop an understanding of contemporary society is described in this manual. The role of film in school curricula and its integration with other studies is discussed in an opening section. The next section contains a survey of the basic equipment--still cameras, 8mm and 16mm motion picture cameras, and tape recorders--with a project for introducing the functions of each. The equipment section is followed by an extensive series of projects which expose the reader to the essential grammar of film and its wide range of expressive and technical possibilities, including drama, social comment, documentary, silent and sound films, group work, community studies, etc. The manual concludes with a technical section which defines film terminology; lists and describes equipment in greater technical detail; explains the operation of cameras, light meters, editing equipment, sound equipment, lighting, and animation: and provides lists of suppliers on both sides of the Atlantic.
